Sake Blurb - Philip Harper Lands a New Brewing Gig!

Posted by admin in 2007, Newsletter, September

sake blurb sept 2007Just got off an email with Philip Harper (does that sound lame? Got off the phone... off the email... forget it!) And he informed me that he has a new job! No longer is he working in Osaka at Daimon Shuzo (makers of Mukune)! He has accepted a new head brewer's position (Toji) at a small kura in Kyoto ("about 3 hours from Fushimi") called Tamagawa Shuzo. You may see their "in Japanese only" website at Philip said that this "little concern" will work on a "English Page" soon.

In between gigs Philip was using a pen rather than a rice paddle and was scribing for the Japan Times. His latest can be found here:

Once he gets settled into his new digs I will hit him up for another interview on one of the following topics: Umami -Fact or Fiction, White Boys Make Better Sake, Black & Decker Kimoto Drilling Method, The real reason why kurabito remove their shirts in the koji room, Breakfast Sake, or PH's personal record for changing footwear going from one room to another in one brewing day. Stay tuned!
