Gekkeikan Sake Brewery Tour
Gekkeikan's state-of-the-art sake brewing facility in Folsom, California continues the success story that began more than 360 years ago five-thousand miles away in Fushimi, Japan. Gekkeikan now brings the newest technologies to a brewing process that is nearly 2,000 years old. Why was Folsom selected? Just as Fushimi was "discovered" centuries ago, Folsom was found to offer just the right conditions: high quality water and an abundance of rice- the perfect setting for a skilled brewmaster backed by over three and a half centuries of experience. Your self-guided tour is available Monday through Friday from 10AM to 4:30PM.
Then relax at the beautiful koi pond and take in the Japanese garden. The tasting room offers complimentary tasting of "Kobai", the latest plum wine, as well as a variety of locally produced sakes. Must be 21 or older for tasting. After your tour and tasting, check out the gift shop and enjoy a 20% discount on any Plum Wine or Sake. 10% discount on any other shop item. Gekkeikan offers a number of unique snack and gift items for sale, such as sake sets, Japanese dishes, dolls, and sushi-making accessories! 1136 Sibley Street, Folsom. 916-985-3111
