Hayashi Honten is a new and innovative brewery in the city of Gifu, Japan. Their driving focus is on 'remembering the old while embracing the new' - a sentiment very evident in their work as they produce new and exciting products using old school techniques and crafting everything by hand. They source their water from the Nagara and Kiso rivers which flow through the city of Gifu from the Dainichigatake Mountains, or the 'Japanese Alps.'
