Thanks for visiting our site.

Ise Kadoya is a small brewery located in Ise, Japan. Our name “Ise Kadoya” comes from two different driving factors in our company’s background—Ise, where are brewery is located and Kadoya, part of the company name my family has been using for over 430 years.

Ise Kadoya microbrewery began in 1997 out of a passion for beer making and beer drinking. We have always operated under the philosophy that if we work as hard as we can and follow our passions, we will serve our city, our customers and ourselves. And 13 years after bottling our first batch of Pale Ale, we feel very fortunate and humbled by our success.

Our brewery may be small, but we have the confidence to compete on the world stage. Admittedly, when we won our first international beer awards in 2003, we were a bit taken aback at just how far we had come and how receptive the international audience was with our beer. However, we know brewing is about quality over quantity and we feel being small means we can always pay close attention to the brewing process and always have a hands on approach to our beer making. We are proud of our beers but never too proud to rest on past successes. We are committed to brewing consistently high-quality beers while at the same time to pushing the limits of our imaginations to create an every expanding array of brews to keep our customers happy and intrigued.

Even though we are small, we compete on the world stage. When we won our first international beer awards, even we were a bit taken aback at just how far we had come and how receptive people had become to our beer.

If you are a fan of our beers, we sincerely thank you for your continued support. On the other hand, if you are just getting to know us, we invite you to look around our site to get to know us a little bit better. We hope you like what you see and if you have any questions or comments, we would love to hear from you. Cheers.
