Sake has been around for centuries in Japan, but consumption has dropped in recent years.Though it's often called rice wine, sake actually is brewed like beer.Unlike wine, though, sake generally is consumed fresh and isn't aged for long periods.As the story goes, sake came to the U.S. when American soldiers stationed in Japan after World War II returned home with a taste for it, prompting Japanese sake makers to open the first U.S. breweries in Hawaii and California.Richardson, whose sister company is now milling rice for several sake producers, including Blue Current, believes sake will grow as consumers become educated and feel less intimidated by the Japanese characters on bottles.
