Construction at Urakasumi

One of the final stops on our tohoku sake volunteer project for 2011 was the well known Urakasumi Brewery. I first visited Urakasumi in 2009 so I did get a chance to see the place before the disaster struck. I was encouraged to see that construction was well underway to fix the buildings that had been damaged by the tsunami.

We were given a short presentation by Urakasumi employee Ms. Funyu. Funyu-san showed us a slideshow of photos from the disaster and an overview of the steps they are taking for full recovery. After that, we got a tour of the brewery from the Urakasumi Toji. we needed to put on hard hats as the brewery buildings were active construction sites.

After the tour, we got a tasting and wonderful Q&A session. It was a wonderful day spent with Urakasumi. Seeing their recovery up close made me realize they are already well on the way to a full recovery. Before lunch, the group stopped by the gift shop and tasting bar. I was shocked to find the Japanese flag I had signed earlier in the year, sending our best wishes to Urakasumi (see gallery below!), was on proud display! This made me feel good that our well wishes reached them.

I feel grateful to be here on this day and bear witness to disaster, recovery and how sake brings us all together. Kanpai!

tim_photo.jpg Elements of Sake Class II: Pairing Sake and Food!

Please join me!! I am teaching a sake class at the Astor center called the “Elements of Sake II: Pairing Sake and Food.” The perfect follow-up to The Elements of Saké or an ideal choice for any saké enthusiast eager to broaden their horizons! In Part II, we’ll deepen our exploration into this ancient brew. We will discover the wild side of saké by tasting bold Kimoto and Yamahai styles (made using yeast starters), as well as some sweet and delightful Sparkling sakés, and rich and decadent aged sakés. Furthermore, we’ll begin to explore the theories behind sake and food pairings by sampling some dishes made specifically to compliment our saké. Join us for an in depth look at Nihonshu to take your understanding of saké to the next level.

This class takes place at Astor Center. Tickets required. Cost $79
