Baeren Brewery is located in Kitayama, Morioka, Iwate prefecture. We have very traditional and old vintage brewing equipments from southern district of Germany and carried into Morioka, which locates in Tohoku, far north up from Tokyo, Japan. The traditional way of beer brewing still lives on here and Mr. Miyaki who got certificated as a Brewmeister in Germany make great beautiful beers. The location of our brewery is perfect also for hiking because it is located near the center of the city and stands just by Route 4 but at the same time surrounded by a forest, which means you can easily and naturally feel the nature around. We sell our beer at the entrance of our brewery so you can drink and get some special Baeren goods there. You can make a field trip if you want. (Please make a reservation in advance if you want to observe special brewing equipments directly with our staff explanation.)

The shield carried by the bear features a beer barrel with three tools that were traditionally used by European brewers, symbolizing BAEREN’s commitment to traditional brewing techniques.
