Public Tours Begin Dec. 16

Taste pure soymilk fresh from the kettle. Savor yuba (tofu skin) from the only fresh, organic producer in the US. Sample Hodo dishes that can't be found elsewhere. Watch our artisans make soymilk, tofu and yuba. Learn about soybean selection, soymilk Brix content, yuba technique and other important elements of the innovative production process at Hodo.

Starting December 16, Hodo
Soy Beanery will launch public tastings at our newly-opened Beanery in Oakland. During a one-hour session, visitors will learn about tofu- and yuba-making, view production in action, and taste a variety of Hodo's freshly-made products.

These public visits have been a goal ever since we first laid plans to open our new production facility. We want to pull back the curtain on tofu-making and offer people the opportunity learn about, appreciate and enjoy soy in a new way. Artisan tofu- and yuba-making is a fascinating process to experience. Taste the difference between our freshly made soy products compared to off-the-shelf supermarket products. We are excited by the challenge to do something that hasn't been done before - Hodo Soy Beanery is the first tofu maker in the US to offer public visits and tastings.

All tours will be by reservation only.
Initially, availability will be limited (one session every two weeks: Wednesdays at 12:30 p.m.). Tours will be held in small, intimate groups and include tastings. Ticket price is $10 per person. Buy your tickets here.
