Sake Info – Finally Some English From The National Japanese Sake Appraisals

It’s been a while in the making, but there is some good news on the sake front for those who do not read Japanese but would like to learn more about the Japanese National Sake Appraisals and the National Research Institute of Brewing. As Chris Pearce pointed out in an email to me with this head’s up, he said that they are extremely under-staffed and over-worked and this was never a priority! But with the popularity of sake at an all-time high it’s about time that they did release some time and resources to help those “out there” know a little more about what goes on “in there!” From Chris:


“You’ve probably seen this, but you might like to let friends and followers know about it. The National Research Institute of Brewing has started posting the Japan National Sake Appraisal results in English. They’ll also soon release an exhaustive Japanese-English lexicon of sake-brewing terms.”
