Norwegian maverick brewery Nøgne ø will be the first in Europe to start brewing sake. There have been rumours before, but now it’s official. They will use Italian rice for this.
Brewer Kjetil Jikiun says to nrk.no that they will consider to start growing rice in Norway for their sake production. Sure. There are readers (and journalists) who will believe anything.
If they make limited releases of sake, I’m sure the beer geek market will pay handsome prices for the bottles.
