4th Annual Local Tastes with Friends of Clyfford Still

IMG_0049-2048x1024.jpg

Very excited to be apart of this fun event at the Clifford Still Museum this summer! It has my wheels spinning and thinking about if we can get a fun sake out in time for the event. Perhaps this is a good time to introduce the Gin Barrel Sake, or bring back the Jackalope Milk Teeth, or wake Old Mose from hibernation. The list of participants isn't out yet, but should be fantastic.

Guess I'll have to head on over to the museum with my notebook soon and get to creating!

For more information on the participants and event details, head over to the museum's website.

303 Day Pacific Rim Sake Tasting - 3-3-18

Yesterday's sake tasting event at Uncle Joe's Hong Kong Bistro was super fun. It was a sold out event with a great turnout. Even though there were over 30 sakes at the event our line never slowed all day.

It was great to hear the feedback and see how our sake paired up with the more traditional stuff from Japan. It was also a good experience to set up shop next to the new kids in town, Colorado Sake Co. and see how we stacked up against them. Our sakes are both very different, with different flavor profiles. I'm excited for how we will influence each other going forward...and what we might create together.

It is always nice to get feedback from professionals and casual drinkers alike. It makes me really excited to have a tasting room soon. We've got a lot of ideas that we'd like to persue and it is great to see that folks are open to our experimentation with sake.

We've also heard that there is a new game in town working on some new legislation that, if it goes through in a timely manner, will be really great for us...and hopefully for all of you. First it will allow us to have a tap room and make it easier to sell product directly to you. We've very excited!

We're also exploring some spaces for a new tap room and have our eyes on some pretty cool spaces.

2018 is shaping up to be really interesting and full of excitement. 

Lost in Translation with The Five

We had a fantastic evening hanging out with the great chefs of The Five. Our serving station was right next to Duane Walker of Centro Mexican Kitchen who prepared an incredible Beet Cured Salmon Noodle Bowl and Sriracha Buffalo Fried Oyster Roll. Both paired nicely with our LSQ and El Colorado sakes. Our other neighbor was Elan Wenzel of Sushi Sasa who created some tasty and unusual Pot Pie Stuffed Churros and Miso Soup Mashed Potatoes. The whole menu was fantastic and really surprising.

The whole night was kind of like being on an episode of Top Chef. The creativity and talent tonight was pretty amazing. 

The response tonight was really great from the attendees and we had a lot of fun. We look forward to working with all these folks in the future.

Sake and Sushi with Cook Street

We had a lot of fun last night with our friends over at Cook Street. It was fun actually getting to create the food that was pairing with our sake for the evening's meal. Thanks a lot to our great chefs, Christiano and Michie for all their help and knowledge. It was a fun night of tasting and cooking. Hope to see some of you there next time.

Preparing for Sake Day!

We're pretty excited for Sake Day (October 1) this year! Our brewer Marc is breaking out some of the sake he brought back from Takayama, one bottle our good friend Gordon Heady helped make, some sake from our friends at Blue Current Brewery and Ceadar River brewery, and some other odds and ends he's picked up over the last year. He may even share some R&D stuff he's been working on.

Its a great day to do some research and hang with good friends.
