Winners of numerous awards worldwide, Hitachino has established a cult following for their innovative craft brewing and distinctive owl logo - Kounosu, the village where the beers are brewed, means ‘nest’. Brewed by Kiuchi Brewery, Hitachino beers are now enjoyed worldwide.

The distinctive Hitachino Nest owl logo originates from the Japanese village of Kounosu where the beers are brewed. In a literal translation, Kounosu means "nest".

The Kiuchi Brewery was established in 1823 by Kiuchi Gihei, the headman of Kounosu village. His family was collecting rice from farmers as land taxes for the Mito Tokugawa family and began his brewery with the idea of using the remaining rice stocks from the warehouse.

In the 1950's, Mikio Kiuchi inherited the brewery legacy. It was the time when the sake industry flourished as the rapid growth of Japan's economy after the World War II. Although many sake breweries started mass producing low quality sake due to increased demand, Kiuchi Brewery maintained their policy of pursuing the best quality of sake with the optimum ingredients and craftsmanship.

In 1996, Kiuchi started brewing Hitachino Nest Beer and, in subsequent years, has gained international acclaim and winning numerous awards.
