USA, OR: Portlands Shimai Toshi Brewing to specialize in Japanese citrus yuzu
The newest Portland brewery is all about utilizing the Japanese citrus yuzu, the Eater reported on January 19.
Shimai Toshi Brewing, which translates to sister city in Japanese, is a collaboration with Ian Marshall, who owns a fig and citrus farm in Boring, Oregon.
Marshall is one of the only farmers to grow yuzu in Oregon, supplying citrus for places like ramen shop Afuri.
Zoiglhaus Brewings Alan Taylor helped develop the brewerys first beer, a yuzu lager for Afuri.
Shimai Toshi is also contemplating non-beer offerings, like a yuzu hard seltzer.
Find the initial beer at Afuri and bottle shops like Johns Marketplace.
