MORE ABOUT THE BREWERY
Made in an ultra-handcrafted and traditional style at our smallest partner brewery (280 koku), the kanji on the label translates to “nothing has changed since the beginning.”
Like their ancestors who did not have access to modern brewing technology, the Yamada family mills their own rice in-house (unheard of for such a small-production brewery), and they brew at ambient temperatures without heating or cooling controls.
