We're proud to present another exciting Saturday tasting with two local favourites, Peckham's own Brick Brewery and Kanpai London Sake, who've got together to produce something rather special - Mottainai Sake Beer.
Mottainai (もったいない) is a Japanese term that conveys a sense of regret with regards to waste - for example, the expression "Mottainai!" is an exclamation for when something useful, such as food or time, is wasted, translating roughly as "What a waste!".
In this case, a base beer was made, then the kasu, or "waste" product from sake brewing (containing rice, live yeast and koji) was added. The result is a dry, orange-hued beer with notes of umami (savoury) and citrus - and we can't wait to try it.
We're delighted to launch this at the shop on Saturday from 4pm. See you there.
