Sake is very popular over here in California. It would be fun to give my friends a bottle of Biden Sake.

Except it's not pronounced bai-den, it's pronounced bee-den. 美田

Naming a sake after a man who got more votes than any US president in history.

In other words, a winner.

Seems like a good idea.

Don't mean to be picky but did you read the article?

The article clearly says ,coincidence of his brand being called "Hojo Biden" ,

And says they "introduced the rice wine with a robust flavor meant for sake connoisseurs back in 1996"

It just says that the "company looks to capitalize on the name recognition" meaning not named after Biden just a coincidence but they will put a sticker and call it Biden and not pay him anything for the use of his name.

Biden does not drink.

This guy should change the name of his Sake.

I sense Biden will be all done soon.

God awful President.

Brewer Inoue, who is also the company's managing director, says this past success -- and using a stroke of luck with his Biden branding -- has brought about good business opportunities.

Might want to be carful Inoue san. Shhhh! Hunter may start to make royalty demands.
