Suntory Kyoto Brewery is Suntory's second brewery opened in 1969 in Nagaokakyo City. Around 90% of beer is made of water, so Suntory insists on building the brewery in places rich in high quality ground water (tennensui). A tour in the brewery shows the process of beer production, from ingredient selection, wort production, fermentation, maturation, filtration to packaging. At the end of the tour, there are 3 kinds of beer available for tasting (type of beer for tasting may change without prior notice). Other special events or seminars may take place, and inside there is a souvenir store that sells The Premium Malt's beer and accompanying appetizers.
Guided tour: includes explanation in the brewery about each step of the beer making procedure and free beer tasting. Available everyday except for holidays from 10:00-15:15 (last tour), 70 minutes each, free of charge, reservation required.
