Talk & Tasting
Wednesday, October 24, 6:30 PM

Over the past few decades Japan has developed a formidable craft beer scene, but before that, Japanese brewers spent centuries perfecting the brewing of sake. Today, American beer brewers have started to turn to Japan for inspiration, drawing on traditional sake brewing techniques and creating unique new hybrid beverages. At this talk, Joshua M. Bernstein, beer journalist and author of Homebrew World: Discover the Secrets of the World's Leading Homebrewers, traces how Japanese sake techniques and producers are influencing today's beer trends. Moderated by Akiko Katayama, food writer and host & producer of “JAPAN EATS!”.

Followed by a tasting of Japanese craft beers and beers influenced by Japan. Must be 21 years of age, or older.

Tickets: $35/$30 members, seniors & students
