Thanks to you, DD4D BREWING will celebrate its 4th anniversary on May 30, 2023. Therefore, we have released a special page "DD4D Everyone's Challenge" with the theme of our vision "Creating a world where everyone can pursue their own path" !
We hope that through craft beer, we can create an opportunity for as many people as possible to take the first step by letting them know about the challenges and off-duty moments of the DD4D members.

How did you get into DD4D?
When I was in Kyushu at my previous job, everyone I met was talking about DD4D and Mr. Yamanouchi, saying "When you think of Matsuyama!" and "When you think of craft beer!" I put a star on the map. Take a U-turn back to Matsuyama and start living there, let's go! Just when I was thinking about it, they were looking for staff, so I suddenly applied. It's been half a year since I joined DD4D, but I'm always inspired by the attitude of DD4D's product creation, the customers and staff who gather at the store, and the many people I meet.
Tell us your challenge!
When I was in Ireland on a working holiday, it was common to see musicians on the streets and in shops playing freely, and passers-by throwing money at them and buying them beer. I myself was encouraged by someone's music and street art on the street, and I left a small part-time job fee at the feet of singers on the roadside. Just like the Irish town I experienced, I really want a place in Japan, or rather a place in my neighborhood where anyone can make what they want to do and touch it. So, I'm running a coffee shop and a select shop " PUBLIC HOUSE Hama ". Located right in front of the local Hojo fishing port in Matsuyama City, this is a facility where you can share delicious food, music, and art, or stay overnight. I want it to be a place where I can tell people over the years that they can row anywhere they choose, and that the small Seto Inland Sea in front of them is definitely connected to the ocean. I want to create a foundation for a new culture.
When you're not at DD4D, what do you do when you're off?
It's a luxury once a month to watch a movie, go to a hot spring, and think about the movie I saw while soaking in the bathtub. Speaking of considerations, I also quite like zombie movies that can be enjoyed without thinking about anything, and SF psychos that don't make any sense at all. I want to cherish my time as much as I interact with many people every day, so no matter what happens, I decide to go through that routine alone. However, if you meet someone you know on the way to the hot springs, you can change your schedule and go out for a drink. So I can do this routine about once every six months. (smile)

Every Monday, I stand at the counter in Chifune-cho as a pinch hitter for the store manager Reiya. I would like to make the toasting scene more interesting and richer at the taproom, where you can meet people of different languages and generations! Please come and visit us!
