Gatehouse Publishing has released new title, SAKE: The History, Stories and Craft of Japan’s Artisanal Breweries, an exploration of the captivating world of Japanese brewing. Providing a look into the process rich with tradition, the volume is an insightful and enriching experience for both seasoned and novice sake drinkers. The 420-page anthology functions as an in-depth guide to sake and showcases artisanal alternatives to prevailing mainstream offerings. Offering profiles on 75 different breweries, each feature is based on interviews with the families who have devoted generations to the craft of brewing. SAKE is authored by Hayato Hishinuma and Elliot Faber, and illustrated with stunning photography by renowned photographer Jason M. Lang, known as one of the world’s most esteemed travel photographers. Through his lens, Lang captures the small-batch processes, the landscapes where the 2,000-year-old product is crafted, and the individuals required for the brewing process. You can check out select images from SAKE above, and can purchase the title now at Gatehouse online.
