Niyodogawa-cho's pure mountain spring water
The diagram below provides a better perspective of how much water we have in Niyodogawa-cho. Below is a page from the Official Agawa History book (Agawa is a section of Niyodogawa-cho). It shows the streams that feed into the Niyodogawa River. Mukai Craft Brewing is utilizing water from a spring that forms one of these streams.
Next to our brewery is one of the many springs in Niyodogawa-cho. From this spring water emerges cold, very pure (low ion concentration), and slightly soft (pH = 6.3). We channel this water into our brewery, and use it directly (without disinfectants) to make our beers. This special water is one of several crucial factors that go into making our delicious beers.
