About Sumikawa Brewery

Aspiring to “reflect the clear water that permeates the rice stalks”, Chief Operator and Head Brewer Takafumi Sumikawa brings a high pedigree, after undertaking training at the much-lauded Takagi brewery – renowned for its Juuyon-dai brand – and being named top brewer of his generation. Toyobijin has charmed and fascinated fans both within Japan and across the globe, attracting still more attention through the practice of cultivating specific varieties of sake rice under contract with local farms.
