Yoshinogawa Shuzōten, located in Kitakata, Fukushima, has been loved by locals for generations as a brewery producing sake in small quantities and selling 98% of its brew in the local Kitakata area, making it a truly local brew. It is a fine, fragrant sake made entirely from handmade koji and traditional koshiki. The brewery has won gold medals at the National New Sake and Nambu Toji Association competitions.

Yoshinogawa Brewery in Kitakata, not to be confused with its namesake in Niigata, is a genuinely local brewery producing for the local market, with "local" referring to Kitakata and the surrounding Aizu area. We found their futsushu at a Gyomu supermarket. In Aizu, even the most rustic grocery shop has three metres of local sake on its shelves—a paradise for orthodox sake aficionados. Yoshinogawa's futsushu comes only in 1.8l bottles. We were surprised by its elegance and perfect balance. It isn't easy to find Yoshinogawa outside Aizu; their futsushu, however, seems to be available on Amazon Japan. The brewery itself does not have a website.
