Brewery information 2023.08.18

Open factory "KULABO"

Open factory "KULABO" is a direct sales store of Takano Sake Brewery Co., Ltd. where you can freely tour the bottling factory.
The name "KULABO" comes from the meaning of "sake brewery", "collaboration between breweries" and "sake brewery laboratory".
In addition to sake tasting and factory tours, the store also sells sake from Takano Sake Brewery Co., Ltd. and nearby breweries, as well as Niigata specialties.

The brewing culture has been nurtured by the Hokkoku Highway and its post towns in Nishikan*, a brewery cluster that is rarely seen anywhere else in the world.
