"Crafting the Perfect Sake in Kanagawa"
Tuesday, December 8 at 6:30 pm EST, 3:30PST
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 and polishes their rice for sake brewing to meet the highest standards while being environmentally sustainable.
This sake specialist John Gauntner sheds light on the uniqueness of sake in Kanagawa, and Izumibashi President Yuichi Hashiba provides an exclusive virtual tour of the Brewery facility behind the scenes. The program will conclude with the introduction of sake and food pairing.
This is a free event, with advance registration required. The program will be live-streamed through YouTube, and registrants will receive the viewing link by email on the event day.
