Yoshikubo Brewery is located in Mito, Ibaraki Prefecture. It was established in 1790 by Yoshikubo Seizaburo (吉久保清三郎), a rice and grain merchant. The brewery expanded fast under the name Awanoya (粟野屋); its first two brands were Mika no Tsuki (甕の月) and Ippin (いっぴん). Yoshikubo Brewery was obliterated in the American air raid on Mito and other northern cities on 1 August 1945. Awanoya resumed operations in 1949 and was incorporated as Yoshikubo Brewing Co., Ltd. in 1952. It is currently managed by Yoshikubo Hiroyuki (吉久保博之) in the 12th generation.

This is a strong and crisp special junmai: the nose is fresh and crisp with a hint of alcohol and dried fruits. Slightly dry with a spicy finish. Its mild aroma goes well with all kinds of food, we had it with Japanese nabe.
