When you go to Sapporo Beer Garden, you’ll look at the Big Pan like a UFO. But it’s not one. This is a Beer Brewing Kettle(Mash pan). According to the guide panel in Sapporo Beer Garden;

This is part of a brewing kettle inwhich the ingredients for beer, such as malt, hops and water, are mixed together and boiled. The kettle, which has a diameter of 4 meters, was manufactured by Ziemann of Germany, and is made of copper in order to transefer heat efficiently to the mixture inside.

It was first put into service in 1961 at Sapporo Brewery in Ibaraki, Osaka, and Company records show that kettle was used to brew beer 30,000 times over the next 40 years. Having been released from active service, this kettle was transfered to the Sapporo Beer Museum in June 2009. It stands as a symbol of the Osaka Brewery, considered the best brewery in the Orient when it was built.
