Arizona Sake

Yokohama, Japan native Atsuo Sakurai, is the only First-Grade Sake Brewer in the United States. He spent 10 years in the sake industry in Japan before launching his own sake in Holbrook, Arizona.

In his first year in business, he took home a major honor: named the best sake outside of Japan winning the only Gold Medal in the 2018 Sake Competition in Tokyo.

So how did Sakurai end up in Holbrook? It’s a love story, of course. His wife, Heather, was teaching English in Japan when she and her sister walked into Sakurai’s place of business. Sakurai was charged with giving the ladies a sake tasting and the two fell in love. Sakurai even created a sake with a nod to Holbrook and his wife’s heritage.

Hatch's Quick Stop

Sitting on historic Route 66, you can gas up with a local family at Hatch's Quick Stop in Holbrook. Owner, Doug Hatch's grandfather worked here when it was a mechanic shop servicing travelers who passed through town close to 50 years ago.

Soon, the Hatch family would add gas pumps, a small convenience store and alcohol as well. During the pandemic, social distancing is a challenge in the small store. They limit capacity to just 5 people at a time and have added plexiglass to separate the clerk from the customers.
