Located near one of the three famous mountains of Yamagata, Mt. Haguro, Takeno Tsuyu Brewing Company was established in 1858. They chose the area for its wealth of clear water and even excavated a new well in 2002 with water so pure it was certified to be pure drinking water (a hard task to accomplish). The brewery itself is surrounded by a bamboo grove, which gave the brewery its name, “Takeno Tsuyu” meaning “bamboo dew.” They use their own local yeast instead of the industry standard, which means their sake has its own special flare born from the land.
