Brewing sake is a wonderful and unique craft in the world of alcoholic beverages.

But compared to wine, beer, or spirits there is still very little available information outside of Japan and the Japanese language. This makes for a very high barrier to entry in almost every aspect: access to technical information, sourcing materials, connecting with peers, sharing knowledge.

What you’ll find below is intended to assist with sourcing all of the materials needed to brew sake. Additionally you will find a collection of the best known books and resources for everything needed to start a sake brewery. This includes starting and running a business as well as understanding the business of your customers (restaurants, retailers, distributors) and suppliers (growers, manufacturers).
