I purchased Kellogg's rasin brain from Amazon. There's no hechsher or even a K.
Is it kosher?

Does anyone know if it would be permissible to drink Sake from this brewery?

I met one of the owners Brian and he invited me to stop by.

Additionally in general does Sake need a hechsher?

From the CRC:

Unflavored sake is acceptable without hashgacha.
Flavored sake (e.g., Coconut Sake) and sake which
states on the label that it was aged in wine casks
require hashgacha. Nevertheless, due to potential
kashrus concerns, it is preferable to only consume
premium sake labeled as Honjozo, Ginjo, or Daiginjo.

Any reason why it should not need a hashgocha?
It had some weird hechsher looking symbol on it... Wasn't sure if it was actually a hechsher, and how reliable.

Btw, for some reason my perception is that bottled drinks and sodas are very often kosher without any hechsher visable.

Many sodas, yes, but other bottled drinks?

Not sure that there should be, but it's common knowledge that Pepsi is kosher without a hechsher for example. I always thought that many juices were problematic, however no real knowledge one way or the other

the reason for that is because the product (syrup) is certified, but not the bottling plant. So they can't always put a hechsher on the bottle, but all they're doing is adding honey.
I didn't see a hechsher on the bottle, and I tried to check if it's private label of one of the big national brands, but did not succeed
