As refreshing as an oceanside stroll

Toji Igarashi brews beer as well as sake, and his fermentation expertise is evident in this richly layered junmai ginjo. A rare opportunity to try sake made with Yeast #9 sourced from the brewery that discovered it, rather than from the National Research Institute of Brewing. The result is lively and intense flavors of saltwater taffy salinity that evokes memories of the beach. Song of the Sea is an ode to the brewery’s seaside location in Kanagawa.
