KINOSHITA BREWERYLEARN MORE
Founded in 1842, Kinoshita (Tamagawa) Brewery is definitely a brewery "doing interesting things" today. Kinoshita views each bottle as a work in progress. Time is the last ingredient they add to their sakes: each sake they produce is showcased in their newborn form as unpasteurized, unfiltered, undiluted (“3U”) limited editions, shipped throughout the winter brewing season as soon as they are pressed. From this starting point, they make a wide range of product styles which highlight the huge potential of sake, with time as a crucial ingredient.
