Chiba brewery reopened

This article was originally published in Foodnews

SAPPORO has told FOODNEWS it has partially reopened its brewery in Chiba, which had been shut since the earthquake and tsumani hit Japan on 11 March. "Sapporo Chiba Brewery restarted to produce beer, though not 100% in operation," a Sapporo spokesperson said. "Still, the automatic warehouse is under repair and thus it will take some more time till the shipping recovers completely." They did not disclose whether the brewer's Sendai brewery, understood to have also been closed since 11 March, will be open any time soon.
