Local sake brewer shares a cup
“I discovered Nigori and ever since then, I’ve brewed sake,” said Jeff James, owner of Cedar River Brewing Company, a Phinney based Sake brewery.
Many Seattle residents may know his sake from Bloom, Mashiko, Miyabi 45th and
“I’ve been brewing for almost five years but just started distributing in October,” said James.
The brewery is named for the Cedar River, part of the local water source, and is a
“pastoral” aspect that lends to the tradition of sake.
