①KEY TO THE NEXT DOOR
The collaboration with Naryu Sake Brewery in Saijo City, Ehime Prefecture is back! Using "Iyogagiya Sake Fermented Rice", which is used for Junmai Ginjo "Black Label" and "Lacquer Black Label" of the flagship brand "Iyokagiya" Low-temperature brewing takes many times longer. The aroma is an elegant ginjo incense reminiscent of white grapes. The taste is refreshing and the bitterness is moderate. With just the right amount of crispness and a subtle lingering aftertaste, it's an excellent dish that goes well with any kind of dish.

One of D4D BREWING's 4th anniversary preparations. Brewed using local sake yeast "EK-7". Sweet, gorgeous and complex ginjo aroma, dry aftertaste, aftertaste of barley and bitterness of hops. Lightly toasted American oak chips are used for a slightly spicy flavor. The brewing team has a habit of joking "ma-ma-maa" when pouring sake, and it is a special beer made with the feeling that we want you to enjoy drinking like that.

⑤BARLEY WINE 2022
An evolutionary barley wine that uses local sake yeast and is slowly fermented for about 4 months. In addition, the DD4D brewing team makes chips from freshly felled cedar trees (produced in Kumakogen, Ehime Prefecture), toasts them in the oven, and then soaks them in beer. A sweet and rich barley wine with a subtle ginjo aroma and complex flavors such as caramel, honey, cinnamon and vanilla. Please enjoy not only the temperature change in the glass, but also aging by letting it rest for several years. The expiration date is not set.
