Den Sake Brewery was established in February 2017 by Yoshihiro Sako. Sako is the head brewer (toji) and co-founder. Before starting Den Sake, he apprenticed at several breweries in Japan to learn the craft of sake making.
Sako brews his small-batch sake using traditional Japanese brewing methods with a single origin rice grown by Rue & Forsman ranch in the Sacramento Valley. They have a close working relationship with these farmers and know where each batch of rice originated from and when it was harvested.
Den Sake strives to brew sake with a focus on flavors that naturally compliment local California cuisine as well as Japanese and Asian food.
