Sake Brewer's Dinner



For this special ~SAKE BREWERS DINNER~, ANZU executive chef Barney Brown will be pairing six courses with six sakes. There will actually be two different brewers in town from Japan for this event: from Chikurin in the Okayama Prefecture, Master Brewer Niichiro Marumoto presents his special sakes made from acclaimed Yamada-nishiki rice, since 1986; and from Wataribune in the Ibaraki Prefecture, Master Brewer Takaaki Yamauchi from the Huchu Homare Brewery presents his heirloom rice sakes that have earned them cult status in Japan.

And, you get four free hours of validated parking, sweet. Just be careful not to drink too much, eh?
