At long last this year seems to be coming to an end. Congrats for surviving all those exams and results, now time to binge on some unwatched anime from this season! Speaking of which, who’s been watching One Punch Man!? All those awesome action scenes and clever humour definitely makes it among my favourite animes from this year. Anyway, a huge thank you to all you members and execs who helped in making this such a great year for [email protected]! And don’t worry, we are still far from running out of superb ideas lined up to satisfy all your anime-related desires until uni season begins again :D

This year was filled with so many fantastic events, all thanks to all of you who came and participated in them, whether it was at a couple of our weekly screenings or the AnimeSydney camp!

Don’t fear though! We still have one more epic event this year so that you don’t have to curl up in the corner of your basement watching Boku no Pico until New Year’s! (That’s what you do, right?)

Sake Factory Tour

August 14, 2010, by , posted in Out and About

Did you know that Australia has a sake brewery? And did you know that its located in Penrith? And did you also know that they offer guided tours around the factory? Well we did. And we decided to take that tour.

Penriff Station

Go Shu Sake Factory

So you probably knew that sake is made using rice, right? (Hence why its sometimes called rice wine.) Well did you know that they use polished rice in sake? Rice has several layers to it, and the most purest sake is made from the core of the rice. To get to that core, the rice undergoes a polishing process that strips away layer upon layer of each rice grain. The remaining rice is used to make sake, whilst the debris created during polishing is used for skin care products (as they are rich in vitamins).


They had tons of rice! Literally!

Special sake making machines

The Go-Shu Sake Brewery is only a few decades old, which is relatively young compared to the sake factories of Japan, some of which are centuries old. But being the only local sake brewery in Australia, their products are sold in over 100 Japanese restaurants and establishments throughout Sydney alone.

Listening attentively.


The Go-Shu Brewery is also very environmentally friendly. Most of their waste products are either turned into skin care products, used to water the plum trees outside or driven down the road to feed cows. Apparently alcohol and sake helps build appetite, so those are some hungry hungry cows.

Bottling machine.

Lots of sake in those silos.

If you’d like to learn more about sake and the sake brewery process, or just looking for an interesting day out, we highly suggest taking the tour. Otherwise, they have a visitor center where you can buy sake and skin care products for cheap! And why wouldn’t you? Sake is good for the skin, good for the appetite and best served with good company!
