The first sake brewpub outside of Japan is in...Minneapolis? You betcha. The sleek, dark, Lyn-Lake watering hole, modeled after an izakaya, or gastropub, has deep, cozy booths and Japanese soap operas playing on the TVs. Blake Richardson, owner of the Herkimer, applied his beer-making experience to rice wine, serving up several varieties of premium, unpasteurized, draft sake. To dampen the effects of the alcohol, Moto-i serves a menu of small plates.
