Homare Shuzō ("Aizuhomare") is located in Kitakata, Fukushima Prefecture. In 1918, Karahashi Kōsaku (唐橋幸作), a rice wholesaler who had been running a miso and koji manufacturing business, took over an existing sake brewery and renamed it Kano Sake Brewery (加納酒造株式会社). Later, to expand the industry, the company moved to its current location in Matsuyama, Kitakata City, and changed its name to Karahashi Sake Brewery (唐橋酒造場) and later Homare Sake Brewery (ほまれ酒造). The "Aizu Homare" brand (会津ほまれ) bears the name "Aizu" to make the name of Aizu sake known all over Japan. At that time, it was quite uncommon to use hiragana for sake brands. The typeface of "Aizu Homare" was created by Tenrai Hidai (比田井天来氏), a modern calligrapher born in Nagano Prefecture.

Light-bodied and a bit thin, it has good qualities but falls short of what one would expect of a Junmai Daiginjo. However, it would be unfair to call it supermarket sake.
