Asamaï Shuzo

Akita Prefecture

Asamaï brewery started its activity in 1917 in Bonchi Yokote, in Akita Prefecture, north of Honshu. A region of plains known for the quality of rice, for the quality of water and its very cold winters; ideal conditions for good quality sake. During the 18th century, when the government tried to limit the production of sake, this region has strongly protested to preserve this tradition and went above this prohibition. Thanks to that, many family breweries were kept active, while at the same time, other regions were losing. Asamaï Kura is certainly the best known brewery of Akita Prefecture.
