In Japanese Coedo (pronounced Co-Eh-Doe) literally means “Little Tokyo”. Coedo is the nickname for Kawagoe (Ka-Wa-Go-Eh), a city in Saitama Prefecture Japan, located in the Greater Tokyo Area. Since before modern Tokyo, Kawagoe has been influencing Japanese culture through its fashion, art and agriculture. Coedo’s well-balanced craft beers carry with them the tradition and craftsmanship of ancient Japan into the modern era.
The brewers at Coedo have honed their brewing expertise in the custom of Japanese artistry. The authenticity of the Kawagoe culture flows through the beer of Coedo like the sleeves of their famous Kimonos. Coedo is a brewery that has its roots in conscientious agricultural practices. Since 1970 Coedo has been pioneering Farm-To-Table produce and organic farming in Japan. Coedo captures the Japanese aesthetic of design, craftsmanship and taste.
Tasting Notes: Two types of black malt join six other malt varieties for a black larger that is smooth, light and balanced – never cloying, with a jet black appearance, Shikoku offers a smoky espresso aroma with a medium bodied malt drinkability. Shikkoku has a rich roasty but balanced flavour with a clean crisp hop finish.
Food Matching: Coffee like roasted flavor of Shikkoku with unexpectedly light body and dry finish is perfect friend for grilled meats, BBQ. Also nice with desserts.
