    Also known as: Hachinohe Shuzo

    Japanese name: 八戸酒造

    From: Aomori prefecture

    Founded in: 1775

    Hachinohe has recently become one of the most experimental breweries around. They regularly use white koji, normally used for shochu, and have introduced a modern fermentation technique that has cut down the standard shubo  (fermentation starter) production time from 14 to only 2 days. The rice and water they use all come from Aomori prefecture, as well as most of their yeast. Their brand Mutsu Hassen promises to take you to the same enlightened state of mind of the eight Chinese hermits (Hassen), famous for debating about wise matters while exchanging glasses!
