Our Story

Handcrafted Sake

It all started over 4 years ago with at an Asian themed dinner party where much sake was consumed. The four of us, long time friends and home brewers, decided to try to home brew some Sake. After many trials and plenty of errors, we brewed a very drinkable and delicious Sake. We kept brewing on a small scale and started sharing our Sake with friends at cook outs and get togethers. Our friends suggested we try to start a full scale sake brewery, and so that's what we set out to do. We worked with a local small business incubator which helped us to get a plan together, and ultimately opened Blue Kudzu Sake Company in October of 2013.

At Blue Kudzu Sake Company we brew fresh handcrafted artisan Sake. Our brewing process uses very traditional Japanese brewing methods that our head brewer and partner Mitch learned while on an apprenticeship in Japan at a 350 year old Sake brewery. Building on the traditional techniques we also use a little American ingenuity to create delicious and approachable styes of Sake.  For more information on our Sake, click here.
