SAKE: The History, Stories and Craft of Japan's Artisanal Breweries
Published by Gatehouse Publishing.
A compendium of the most influential breweries and distilleries, this book serves as a guide to Japan’s generational sake and highlights artisanal alternatives to the popular mainstream offerings. Featuring 75 breweries, each profile was based on interviews with the families who have dedicated their lives – and for some, their entire ancestry – to brewing. Beautifully illustrated with full color photography by Jason M. Lang, one of the world’s top travel photographers, SAKE both shows and tells readers about the small batch processes, the landscapes where these drinks come from and the people involved in brewing.
