From the event page (http://umamimart.com/2014/01/upcoming-event-japan-beer-fest-oak/):
We are ECSTATIC to announce our first partnership with The Trappist (http://www.thetrappist.com/), our wonderful neighbor, and one of the Bay Area’s most revered beer bars. The Trappist specializes in Belgian, European and American microbrews, and its menu contains pages of specialty beers on tap and bottles. We had one of our first Bay Area Umamiventures here, years ago (http://umamimart.com/2010/07/umamiventure-27-the-trappist-oak/), and we are so excited to collaborate with them on this very special event.
Get amped for JAPAN BEER FEST! We’ll be rounding up 10 different microbrews from Japan (on the list so far: Hitachino (http://hitachinonest.com/) Dai Dai Pale Ale and a couple beers by Baird (http://bairdbeer.com/en/)); and Chef Conrad of Seto Ramen (http://umamimart.com/tag/seto-ramen/), together with Chef Mike of The Trappist, will be making PASTRAMEN. That’s pastrami + ramen. Can you dig it?!?!?!
So please join us! This event will be a part of the annual SF Beer Week (http://www.sfbeerweek.org/schedule/) – come out if you’re curious about Japanese beer, beyond Sapporo and Asahi! That’s right, Japan makes beers other than light lagers.
Whether you come for the special line-up of beers from Japan, or the Pastramen, or both (!), you don’t want to miss this epic celebration. Come early, before it all runs out!
