Meet the Brewers: Kawatsuru + Tentaka
Tuesday, May 9, 2023
We are honored to welcome two brewers from Japan whose sakes we've always enjoyed carrying on our shelves – Tentaka Shuzo and Kawatsuru Shuzo. Join us for a mini sake matsuri at our bar and taste through their sakes with us!
We'll be tasting through the following sakes: Tentaka Silent Stream Junmai Daiginjo, Tentaka Organaka Junmai, Kawatsuru Crane of Paradise Junmai, and Kawatsuru Olive Junmai Ginjo.
Get a sticker pass for $40 and visit each brewer behind the bar to try all four sakes!
Tentaka Shuzo (Tochigi)
Located in a region known for its pure rivers and natural beauty, Tentaka has created a sustainable microcosm to preserve and support future generations of sake. We are especially excited about their Organaka, which was featured in April for Sake Gumi, one of the few organic sakes produced in Japan. Succeeding president Shunsuke Ozaki will be joining us for the event.

Kawatsuru Shuzo (Kagawa)
Known for its rice-driven style with elegant, rich texture, Kawatsuru pays respect to the crane that symbolizes longevity and good fortune. Yoko visited the brewery in January and enjoyed a bowl of udon with the Kawahitos – the husband and wife team that owns the brewery. For this event, we are pleased to welcome President and Toji Yuichiro Kawahito to our event. Yoko visited the brewery earlier this year, read the blog post!
