Join us for the program:

In Kanagawa Prefecture, sake brewers take advantage of their bountiful natural surroundings, like the pristine waters that originate on nearby Mount Tanazawa. Izumibashi Sake Brewery, located in Kanagawa, is one of the few breweries in Japan that grows, harvests and mills its own rice for sake production, assuring the utmost quality and control from start to finish. At this program, sake expert John Gauntner illuminates the unique nature of Kanagawa sake, and Izumibashi president Yuichi Hashiba gives a behind-the-scenes look at the brewery facility through an exclusive virtual tour. The program will conclude with a virtual sake and food pairing.
