Uniquely Japanese Jibiiru: Japanese Craft Beer Tasting
Fri, May 12, 2017 5:00 PM @ Sake Nomi
In recognition of Seattle Beer Week, we are very excited to welcome our friend, Yuji Murai of Orcas Distributing, for an evening of Japanese jibiiru tasting on Friday, May 12 from 5 pm.
Just as jizake is local/craft sake, jibiiru is craft/microbrew beer, and has definitely become a "thing" these past few years in Japan.
The beers we will be featuring this Friday are ones we feel are uniquely Japanese due to some of their unusual/bizarre/crazy ingredients. Featured beers will include ones made with roasted chestnuts, gardenias and sweet potatoes, bonito flakes, and one aged in Japanese whisky barrels.
Tasting will start around 5 pm on Friday night. The tasting fee is $5/person, and will be waived with any purchase of beer or sake that evening.
