Flowers Nanobrewery – Kampot, Cambodia

It’s no secret that my favorite town in Cambodia is Kampot. Whenever I have a long weekend, I try to head to Kampot with my dog to do some exploring. Cambodia doesn’t have many microbreweries, but even Kampot has its own microbrewery, Flowers Nanobrewery!

Originally from Japan, head brewmaster now calls Kampot, Cambodia home. In a country where sushi and craft beer are in low supply, Flowers Nanobrewery has both. I enjoy following them on Facebook. He constantly shows photos of fresh fish and his motorcycle loaded with brewing supplies from a recent border run to stock up on craft brewing supplies.

3 motorcycles, 20 buckets, 5kg of hops, 5kg of bottle crown caps, and 50kg of malt bag. Safely delivered to Kampot from Ha Tien, Vietnam. We’ll brew hard.

Whenever I’m in Kampot, I try to keep an eye out for their beers at local restaurants. I’ve had the chance to try two of their flagship beers:

Black Cat Boogie, this we found via Facebook post that it was available at a backpacker’s bungalow – a short walk across town and we found this sweet, yet dark, wheat porter. Black Cat Boogie is 5.9% ABV.

Duck Walk IPA, a decent IPA in a land where a good IPA is hard to find. (I used to live in Portland, Oregon, USA and hated IPAs – one year in Cambodia and I really miss good IPAs now.) Duck Walk IPA is 6.7% ABV.

Blind Lemon, which is a lemongrass pale ale, that I absolutely love. Lemongrass is easy to come by here in Cambodia and I love when breweries use locally sourced ingredients for a great craft beer. Blind Lemon is 5.3% ABV.

Blind Lemon can be found at the best Tex-Mex in Kampot, GringoLoco!

About BiteSize

Hi! I’m Jenna, but I got the nickname BiteSize in high school. I love homebrewing beer, thus BiteSize Brews. A blog focused on homebrewing, local brewery reviews and recipes. I’m lucky enough to live in the microbrewery capital of the world. I’m also a big fan of social media (chances are I’ll sprinkle a bit of it into this blog).

  1. Oooh, he didn’t have Black Cat Boogie when I was visiting a bit more than half a year ago. Will have to make a trip there soon, there’s also supposedly some places in Siem Reap as well that I’d like to check out.
