Ginjo 7 Hybrid Beer

GINJO 7 HYBRID BEER | Item Number: 10400 | Package: 24/16 oz | Origin: USA

Ginjo 7 is Nova Brewing Co.’s original brand of hybrid rice lager/ale beer. It is produced in collaboration with the sake brewer James Jin and the beer brewer Patrick Bustos by using traditional sake brewing techniques to wash and steam the Calrose rice while it is also boiled and fermented like a lager using sake yeast Kyokai #701.

Kyokai #701 yeast is used to create a clean malty craft lager that allows the sake characteristics to shine, and fermenting with the sake yeast under cold temperatures brought out the fruity esters that sake is known for with a clean sake finish known as “kire.”
