Join Sake School of America as we learn more about Izumibashi Brewery, their approach to sustainability, and modern agriculture. Leading the presentation and talk will be Izumibashi’s president, Yuichi Hashiba, and Izumibashi Brand Ambassador, Kayoko Abe. We’ll discuss technology, farming, and brand history (find out why they use dragonflies on their labels)!

If you have any questions for our guests, they would be happy to answer them for you.

About Izumibashi Shuzo:

The name Izumibashi comes from the Izumi river which used to irrigate their fields, and Hashiba, their family name, together Izumibashi means Izumi Bridge. Believing that good sake is made with good rice, Izumibashi is one of the few breweries in Japan that polish AND grow their own sake-rice with their own hands. Izumibashi uses hard water to brew their sake (rich in minerals) rather than soft water (as many brewers use). This creates a more grounded, rich flavor and irresistible mouthfeel. Izumibashi bridges people, the environment, and technology to create amazing sake
