Sapporo is the oldest brand of beer in Japan, founded in 1876, now brewed and enjoyed around the world. The legend of Sapporo began with our first brewmaster, Seibei Nakagawa who left Japan to explore the world and learned the craft of brewing as the first German-trained brewmaster in Japan. He was determined to combine his advanced brewing knowledge with his passion for craftsmanship to create a one-of-a-kind beer. To this day, his legacy lives on in every beer we brew using the highest-quality ingredients we can find giving each of our beers the signature crisp, refreshing flavor and clean finish. Sapporo’s perfectly balanced flavor pairs well with any meal.
