An increasingly important player is a regional brewer based in Otaru, and called Otaru Beer. This is arguably the best brewing outfit in Japan with superb technology and know how. Unfortunately they only supply their signature beers to customers within a 100 kilometer radius of Otaru, so the only other way to sample their product is to drink the beers found in Bikkuri Donkey restaurants.
Two other (much smaller) breweries can be found in Hakodate (Hakodate Beer) and Onuma (Onuma Beer). Both are worth visiting if you have the chance.
