Hitachino, a name synonymous with outstanding Japanese Craft Beer, will be joining SAKE DOJO for a very special night. Hitachino has made a name for themselves internationally in just 24 years, but did you know they have been making Sake for 195 years under their family name, Kiuchi? SAKE DOJO will host a one-night-only Omakase dinner, featuring a guided pairing with BOTH Hitachino Beer and Kiuchi Sake to kick off our Hitachino Festival, through the end of summer. You won't want to miss this special event, featuring 6 Kiuchi Sake and 4 beers by Hitachino. This event is limited to 48 guests, so act now!
Greenbar Distiller was founded by husband and wife team Litty Mathew and Melkon Khosrovian in 2004 after Litty needed to find a more palatable spirit to enjoy with Melkon. After researching and tasting, and building a buzz amongst their family and friends, they opened the Greenbar Distillery operation in 2004.
JOIN US! We welcome you with a cocktail using their Bright City Gin, and then sit you down for a 3 course fully organic meal prepared and paired with the Ixa Reposado, Amber Gin, and Slow Hand Whiskey, and finish off with a dessert and house made umeshu!

While the world of spirits, wine, and beer remain a male dominated world - we are choosing to highlight the women who create the formulas behind some of the best West coast booze.
For our inaugural feast, we are featuring the BURNSIDE expression by East Side Distilling Company created by the amazing MEL HEIM. While already a big deal to finish all of the juice in Garryana Casks ("Oregon Oak"), Burnside holds the title of the FIRST Rye Whiskey finished in Garryana Casks...it also just won DOUBLE GOLD at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Join us as we pair The West End Whiskey, The Rye, and The Burnside Oregon Oaked Bourbon Blend with dishes by Sake Dojo Executive Chef Ruiz Mateo.
