    Brewery:  Kano Shuzo (founded: 1819)

    Kano Brewery was founded in 1819, in a historical domain called Kaga, where a majestic mountain Hakusan soars in its backdrop.  Over generations, the brewery owners, who owned land as well, kept a close look at the local economy and culture. This attitude exactly applies to that of their sake making.  One of their sake is named Jo-kigen, meaning jubilance.  It was named so after a short poem made by the 4th owner when he and the villagers celebrated a splendid harvest at a festive party.  The owner wished for continued good luck and made a poem.  It goes: Chrysanthemums are in bloom, sake is just right, jubilant are we.
