Join us in the tasting room from February 4th to February 8th for Setsubun, a traditional Japanese festival that celebrates the beginning of Spring. We love sharing celebrations with the community, and hopefully you can join us at some point during these 5 days for a small celebration of your own.
Here is a sneak peak at some of the Japanese “inspired” things planned at the brewery:
- Origami from the magnificent Joseph Wu displayed in the Charles Clark Gallery
- In keeping with the Setsubun celebrations, we have bowls of roasted soybeans for eating. Make sure you follow the rules for good luck!
- Japanese music – both live and over our A/V system
- Sushi available in house on Wednesday February 5th
- Karaoke on Saturday February 7th
- Mogu Japanese food truck on Friday February 6th
- Origami folding stations at every table throughout the week
- Most importantly …. a Japanese inspired beer. We have named this beer Yokai, which is a supernatural shape-shifting monster in Japanese folklore.
If you have never celebrated this festival, we hope you can find a couple hours this week to celebrate with us at the brewery. We kick things off with our grand opening celebration on Wednesday February 4th in the evening. We will have sushi for sale, origami folding stations, and hopefully live music in the evening from about 6-8pm.
Things will wrap up on Saturday night with a karaoke machine, which is always sure to make for a great evening, the last of our Japanese inspired beer and whatever else we can think of before the night.
