Yaoyorazu », Yamahai Junmai

Sugii Brewery in Fuieda City is one of the very few breweries which still experiment with old-style sake such as Yamahai and brews concocted with kimoto.
This time, Mr. Sugii devised a Yamahai exclusively made with Homare Fuji, a rice strain grown in Shizuoka Prefecture!
