Japan America Beverage Company faced the challenge of blending the ancient Japanese art of sake brewing with a highly efficient, high-tech operation in Forest Grove.
The join venture, between Momokawa Brewing of Japan and Oregon-based Frost International Group, chose Robert Evans Company. Attention to detail and innovative thinking helped ensure the brewery would operate efficiently. Robert Evans Company guided the project from initial engineering and plant process design through construction, testing and start-up. Close partnerships with Japanese, Italian and U.S. manufacturers resulted in specialty equipment, climate-controlled rooms and process-control systems designed to meet the brewery’s unique needs.
Today Momokawa makes some of the world’s best sake with the same attention to detail that made its brewery one of the most efficient in the nation.
