Homare Sake Brewery
In 1918, Kosaku Karahashi, who had run a miso and koji manufacturing business from a rice wholesaler, took over the sake brewery and founded Kano Sake Brewery Co., Ltd. in the present-day Atsushio Kano-cho, Kitakata City.
Later, to expand the business, the company moved to its current location in Matsuyama-cho, Kitakata City, and changed the company name to Karahashi Sake Brewery Limited Partnership, Homare Sake Brewery Co., Ltd., becoming one of the leading sake breweries in the Tohoku region through stable quality and constant technical improvement. and grew up.
The representative brand "Aizu Homare" bears the name of "Aizu" in order to make the name of Aizu sake known to the whole country.

The typeface of "Aizu Homare" was written by Tenrai Hidai, a modern calligrapher born in Nagano Prefecture.
