Dating back to 1898, this brewery was revived in the Red Brick Warehouse precinct almost a century later, and still brews beer on-site today. The secret ingredient? The natural groundwater of Mount Hakodate, vital to Hakodate Beer’s signature pilsner, as well as inventive brews such as Hakodate Ichigo no Hatsu Koi made with seasonal Hokkaido strawberries. The Red Brick Warehouse houses a large beer hall, while a second venue in an old fish market a few blocks back from the water combines a lively restaurant on the ground floor and a banquet hall above. Both venues serve western and Japanese-style pub grub that goes down a treat with the amber liquid.
