Shimizu Seizaburo Shoten, founded in 1869, is located in Suzuka, which is famous for its Formula One race track. In this region, which is blessed with limpid subterranean water from the Suzuka Mountains and high-quality rice from the Ise Plain, the brewing industry has long flourished. But many of these breweries have been forced out of business, and Shimizu Seizaburo Shoten is now the only brewery in Suzuka. The brewery uses mainly Mie rice grown by local contract farmers and brews on a small scale all year round. The brewery aims to craft a light sake that smoothly harmonizes with food, in pursuit of sake that fits with today's diverse cuisines.
