Crafting the Perfect Sake in Kanagawa
Crafing the Perfect Sake in Kanagawa
Live Webinar & Virtual Tasting
Tuesday, December 8, 2020, 6:30 pm ET
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.
This is a free event, with advance registration required. Pay What You Wish options are also available to support our innovative programs. The program will be live-streamed through YouTube, and registrants will receive the viewing link by email on the event day.
