Events in Japan's happoshu sector have taken a somewhat unexpected turn with an announcement from Sapporo that it plans to launch a premium happoshu brand. Sapporo's new brand will retail at ¥150 for a 350ml can, making it the most expensive happoshu on the market.

While this sector has been a hive of activity in recent months, the attention had until now been focused on price discounting with all four major drinks groups competing aggressively for a larger slice of the low-malt beer market.
