About the brewer

Hakkaisan Brewery http://www.hakkaisan.com Hakkaisan Brewery owns only three sakagura, sake breweries. The company is not particularly large, and it employs only about 40 people. The brewing tanks are also much smaller than those of the large-scale brewers. Modern techniques enable some companies to produce the same volume as Hakkaisan with fewer people by using larger tanks and computer control. However, this approach does not fit Hakkaisan's philosophy. Hakkaisan firmly believes that a computer system is no substitute for the brewer's knowledge and experience. http://www.sakebar.net/special/muikamachi.html

Perfect Glass

Cold sake glass is good enough.
