Sake vs. Beer

Sake vs. Beer - A Japanese Gastronomic showdown!

Established in 1823, Kiuchi Brewery has been crafting sake for many generations. Since 1996 it is also renown for its craft beer range, Hitachino Nest Beer.

Join us for a unique experience as we pit the brewery against itself to decide the perfect food match: sake or beer.

Hosted by Australia's Sake Ambassador Andre Bishop and Kiuchi Brewery staff, this deluxe dinner will deliver a five course degustation matched with both beer and sake. You decide what brew will reign supreme!
