The Last Bottle? 1/1~2: Iwamoto Brewery

2) Matsuwaka Midori Shiboritate Genshu

Mr. Matsunaga, owner of Mr. Matsunaga’s Liquor Shop showed me this bottle last Wednesday.
The last generation of Iwamoto Brewery producing Shikon among other brand names in Fujieda City married into the family owning Sanwa Brewery in Shimizu Ku.
This is another famous brand of theirs: Matsuwaka Midori.
As it had already been bought by a group of collectors, I was only allowed to take a pic and write down the information!
