Don Jalapeño ドンハラペーニョ


What is “Jalapeño”?


Jalapeño is a green chili pepper representative of Mexico. It's not a very familiar name, but it's actually often used in hamburgers and pasta. “Don Jalapeño” is a unique beer made with jalapenos. A unique beer that combines the world-famous West Coast IPA beer style with jalapenos grown at the Hirokawa Farm in Toon City, Ehime Prefecture.


Why "Don Jalapeño"?


Don means Count in Spanish. It seems to have the same meaning as English Sir or Mafia Boss. In Japan, you often hear Don from "Don Quixote," Don from the entertainment world, and Don from the baseball world. I want this jalapeno IPA to become the Don of the beer industry.


Beer’s Story


After receiving a request from a customer in the past, the development of jalapeno beer started. After many experiments, I finally came up with this recipe. We want to make a beer that customers find “exciting”, not just a trend! The thought is the best.


Enjoy your style

    Refreshing feeling that you can feel the meaning of jalapeno instead of chili
    Good balance with sweetness, basic beer is good in the first place

    DD4D IPA + glass set arrived yesterday. First of all, I've been interested in don jalapeno for a long time.
    Almost no spiciness. There is a little grassy smell, but you get used to it and you can drink it at all.

    I made salami and cheese pickled in olive oil. My wife made a stir-fried spinach and jakoten. I will have Don Jalapeno of Matsuyama's local beer DD4D. #ビール部 #DD4D

    Yesterday I won the championship with the don jalapeno and pizza with plenty of jalapeno 🤤 The pizza was heavy, but the beer was sweet and bitter fruity and I was able to eat it perfectly 🙌 I ate too much and my stomach is heavy ❤️

Brew Hacks


Don Jalapeno manufacture is particular about the timing of adding jalapenos.
The first time is the timing of boiling in the beer manufacturing process.
Heating jalapenos brings out their umami, giving them a deep aroma and flavor.
The second time to the fermentation tank for a fresh, volatile aroma.
The aroma that you feel when you pour beer is born in the fermentation tank.


Owner's Comment


Jalapeno beers are often seen overseas, but they are still not well known in Japan. DD4D's role is to propose a wide variety of beer styles. Jalapeno may be difficult to pick up, but it's surprisingly not spicy, so don't worry.
