Supporting Hamamatsu Act Beer's first sales of bottled beers
TOKYO, January 17, 2020 -- OKI Data, the OKI Group's printer company, today announced the delivery of a Pro1040 desktop color LED label printer to Hamamatsu Act Beer Corporation, a craft brewery. Using the Pro1040 to produce labels for its beer bottles, Hamamatsu Act Beer launched its first retail sales of bottled beers in November.
Hamamatsu Act Beer operates the Mein Schloss craft beer restaurant in the city of Hamamatsu. In January 2019, Frisch Pils, a kind of craft beer on its menu, won second prize in the pilsner division of the Japan Brewers Cup craft beer exposition in Yokohama. Subsequently, the brewery took up the challenge of launching retail sales of bottled beers for the first time, based on the idea that highlighting this award-winning beer to draw more visitors to an outstanding local brewery in Hamamatsu would contribute to making the city more popular.
