Just in time for Philly Beer Week!

May 23rd, 2012

We are introducing 3 new micro brews from Japan. It took months, but finally they are here/

We have:
Echigo Red Ale – rich ale with just a kiss of hops. We have carried their Lager and their Stout for some time. The red ale is the perfect middle to these wonderful beers.

Tama no Megumi – pale ale that has been bottled conditioned, a sour orange nose with a richly dense beer

Ozeno Yukidoke – an IPA with distinct citrus notes with a round finish and a hoppy bitter finish

Come and try these truly unique beers. Supplies are very limited.

New Beers for Philly Beer Week

Japanese Micro Beers

Michinoku “Otokoyama”

February 23rd, 2012

"Otokoyama" Means Man's Mountain

 

Michinoku brewery founded over 340 years ago, they found the best mountain range in Hokkaido to produce their sake. It was called Otoko Yama, or man’s mountain. They chose Mt. Taisetsu, with it’s jagged edges and it’s steep cliffs. The spring they are using is shikomimizue spring. Freshest water they could find, light refreshing and all naturally filtered by the Taisetsu mountain.

 

Winters are cold, springs and the sea freeze regularly. Perfect time to make a sake light and fragrant and a sharp finish just like the mountains themselves. At a +14 on the SMV (Sake Meter Value) the crispness is great for sashimi, oysters and cold water crustaceans. With a hint of melon, this sake is just right for Zama’s Omakase.

This is an excellent sake, rich and viscus. It coats the palette and prepares your mouth for the wasabi or anything spicy. The rice they use is Hitomibore, well-known for rich flavor, moderate stickiness and second largest production in Japan. This rice is milled down to 68%, keeping that rich rice flavor in the palette. It shows fruit on the nose with a clean finish. On the SMV, sake meter value, it is +2.5. This sake is great with spicy tuna or any other spicy fish rolls and great with sushi roll with many different components.
