We care about quality. We care about brewery freshness. We care about tastiness for customers.
We only receive and ship the freshest beers from breweries. We are 100% cold from the brewery to our customer account in Japan. We also require cold storage at the retail and on-premise account.
We pick-up beer from the breweries using cold trucks, we off load the beer into our cold warehouse in the U.S. before loading into refrigerated ocean containers.

Nagano Trading Standard
“Cold Chain Program”

品質管理について 品質管理について

Why do we need “100% cold chain”?
・All beers make taste down by days aging, temperature, and lights.
・Either beer with pasteurize or non-pasteurize, beer, especially craft beers should be treated deli products like fresh milk.
・Once beers keep in dry for a while, or more than 10ºC (Especially Japanese climate is high temperature and high humidity!), the taste will go down and we can’t bring back their original taste even set them back to refrigerator when they serve or sell on shelves.
・We are delivery company. Our mission is deliver “tasty beer” from brewery fresh. If the brewery fresh beer doesn’t taste “tasty”, that will be the responsibility of ours, and on/off premise customers. That is why, we set Nagano Trading Standard “Cold Chain Program” to all of our customers to keep the brand value in Japanese market. You can enjoy best beers at our best customer joint!
