Shiokawa Brewing Company
Shiokawa Brewing Company Niigata Prefecture Shiokawa is located in Niigata but bucks the trend of the "Tanrei Karakuchi" (light &dry) style the region is so famous for. This tiny brewery is almost completely operated by one person; “Toji” brewer/president Shiokawa. Although he has a seasonal helper but otherwise works on his own. A very simple, meat and potatoes kind of guy, he always wanted to brew a sake that could pair seamlessly with burgers and BBQ.
