Hakushika Sake USA is a local brewery located at 4414 Table Mountain Drive in Golden, Colorado. The brewery is nestled at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and is locally owned by a family who has been making sake in Japan since 1662. The facility opened its door in 1992 when the family was allured by the fresh Rocky Mountain water. Tours of the facility are available on weekdays and reservations should be made in advance to ensure an English speaking guide if necessary.
Tours of the sake brewery are conducted year around on Mondays through Fridays from 10 am to 4 pm. Visitors may tour the sterile environment of the sake facility and witness the white rice being washed and polished. The tour ends in a highly decorating tasting room. Four types of sake are offered and served cold to ensure the smooth and slightly sweet taste.
The facility also offers a merchandise counter that sells souvenirs and conversation pieces about the Hakushika Sake USA brewery. Bottled sake can also be purchased from the counter. Souvenirs include small trinkets, pottery, or postcards addressing the brewery. Sake glasses are also sold at the merchandise counter and make for a great gift idea.
