The Brewery

Kaetsu Brewery

Kaetsu brews powerful, big, bold sake from Japan’s most popular brewing region, Niigata, which is otherwise known for producing light, clean sake.

• Kanbara’s bold style comes from brewing sake that is muroka (not charcoal filtered).

• The husband and wife co-owners come from families with sake backgrounds and Toji Kenichiro-san has made sake for over 50 years, giving Kanbara a long history of talent and experience.
