Japan's Beer Revolution: The Birth, Death, and Resurrection of Japanese Craft Brewing

Wednesday, October 5, 6:30 PM
Japan Society
33 East 47th Street 
New York, NY 10017

From the Japan Society web site:

"Thanks to Japanese craftsmanship, gourmet ingredients and attention to quality, craft beer in Japan has recently experienced a revolution. Bryan Baird, founder of Baird Beer of Numazu, Japan, and Steve Hindy, Co-founder and President of Brooklyn Brewery, discuss the 17-year history of craft brewing in Japan, offering critical review by a market participant of the good, bad and ugly of an industry that has struggled to find its bearings in parallel with the rest of the country.

Followed by tastings from Japanese craft breweries as well as other beers that were the result of Japanese collaborations or influences from Japan."
