North Island Beer
Sapporo suburban craft beer
“North Island Beer” is a craft beer brand brewed by SOC Brewing at its factory in the suburbs of Sapporo. It is a popular new up-and-comer at beer bars in Sapporo city. Two beer-loving college friends trained in Canada to become meisters went on to begin brewing beer in Sapporo’s Higashi-ku in 2003, aiming to create a Hokkaido craft beer. At the factory in Ebetsu city they relocated to in 2009, you can go on a tour of the factory, as well as experience beer making for yourself, and at the directly operated store “Beer Bar NORTH ISLAND”, you can taste a total of eight craft beers, fresh from the barrel, including six classic beers and two limited-edition beers. It is an essential shop for getting to know the beers of Hokkaido.
