Founded by Brandon Doughan and Brian Polen, @brooklynkura is the first sake brewery in the state of New York. Rona Tison and Toshiki try their signature Blue Door, a junmai-style sake, made from 4 ingredients: water, koji, yeast, and rice. Brian also serves them a special-release shiboritate (or freshly pressed) sake called Lake Suwa. Neighbors in Brooklyn, @itoen and Brooklyn Kura share a mission in educating the American public about Japanese cuisine, a commitment for which Rona has been recognized by the World Tea Expo.
