We gladly share the following news from BLCCJ member company Ever Brew.
In 2015 CEO Ryohei Sugawara established beer company “Rio Brewing & Co.” in Brussels (daughter company of Ever Brew). They have been exporting to 10 different countries all over the world.
On March 13th they opened their first company brewery “Rio Brewing & Co. Tokyo Brewery” and pub “Butcher NYC United”, under the train tracks between Gotanda and Osaki-Hirokoji stations.
The brewery will start operating sometime end of April or May, once they have obtained the liquor manufacturing license.
In March a crowd-funding campaign was started to finance the brewery. Within 50 hours the goal of JPY 3,000,000 was reached. Now the goal is to gather JPY 7,500,000, so all contributions are still very welcome.
