Japanese craft beer & whisky festival March 2019
Heard about Japanese Craft Beer & Whisky and interested to find out more about it? The Japanese Craft Beer & Whisky festival March 2019 is a great place to start.
Situated on the grounds of Tsunami Mosman Park, this event will also offer the opportunity to sample and purchase not only fine Craft Beers but also Whisky, Craft Gin, and new this year shochu from all from Japan from the northern prefecture of Iwate on Honshu island, to Kagoshima on the extreme south of Kyushu island.
For the Craft Beer lovers
These beers are true craft beers from small breweries (not mass produced under license in China, Thailand, Phillipines or even Australia. They all contain 'Japanese water' and are made by dedicated teams of under 10 people).
$30 Entry fee includes a tasting card entitling you to enjoy 8 x 100ml samples ranging from Classic, Alt, Stout, IPA all the way to special flavoured yuzu beers.
Cider lovers are in for a teat as we are unveiling the first Japanese cider to be imported into Australia, the Baeren Dry Apple cider, together with its sister drink, the ‘Perry’ (pear cider). These are all made with local village fruit and there are no flavourings, colourings or even water added.
For the Craft Spirit lovers -
$40 Entry fee includes a tasting card entitling you to enjoy 5 x 15ml samples of Whisky and Gins. We have a new range of kitty local store little known whiskies that you might have seen on travels to Japan but never got to try along with the more mainstream Kirin Fujisanroku Tarujuku, Nikka Single Malt Miyagikyo & Yoichi, Suntory The Chita.
For gin lovers we have Okayama Craft Gin (Silver award winner and winner of best Japanese craft gin in Melbourne International Spirits award 2018) and others.
For those who are interested there will be a range of plum wine and yuzushu (Japanese lemon flavoured alcoholic drinks) available on the day for tasting and/or takeaway.
New! Shochu Tasting.
This year for the first time we have a $20 tasting card for those who want to explore the upcoming world of shochu. There are 5 tastes with varieties including mugi (buckwheat), Kobe (rice) along with 3 different types of imo (sweet potato) held by many as the best type of shochu.
The Tsunami chefs will offer a range of foods to match your drinks with all mostly $10 so they won't break the bank.
All products sampled at the event will be on sale to take home at special show prices for the day.
