We have two great new beers on tap this week in honor of SF Beer Week.
First up is Manzanita from Fort Point Beer Company in collaboration with Freigeist from Germany. We put this on tap last week and Lanny loved it. Smoked beechwood malt and charred Manzanita branches add complexity and a touch of bitterness that is nicely balanced by a crisp refreshing finish.
Next up is Patchwork, on tap at Moshi Moshi beginning Wednesday February 15th. Patchwork is a hoppy red ale brewed at Harmonic Brewing in collaboration with Triple Voodoo, and Magnolia breweries. A special Chilean malt gives this beer its color. Citrus notes interlace with the complex malt flavors while assertive hops add pop to
the finish without taking over. Delicious. It’s available only at participating bars and restaurants within the Dogpatch neighborhood.
Dine with us Wednesday night February 15th and try some great beers. When you’re done you can catch a shuttle provided by the Brewer’s Guild at Triple Voodoo brewery just down the street from us that will take you to Magnolia, Harmonic and Speakeasy breweries from 6:30pm to 10:30pm. See you there!
So couldn’t make Whisky Fest this year? Don’t fret its a whisky fest everyday at Moshi Moshi. In the Scottish tradition, we pour our Japanese and Scotch whiskies from a 25 ml thimble. 25ml is a bit more than 3/4 of an ounce which is plenty to get a real taste for any whisky and by pouring less the price of admission comes down which allows are guests to try more whisky. We have lots of whisky!
Our specialty is Japanese whisky and we have healthy supplies of the core age stated whiskies from Yamazaki, Hakushu, Hibiki, Nikka PureMalt, Yoichi and Miyagikyo. We also carry all labels from Mars-Iwai, Chichibu and Akashi and we have a staff that knows their whiskey. Lanny, Phil, Mindy and myself have all been to Japan and toured several of the distilleries there. We love talking about whisky and being able to share firsthand information with our guests.
Of course we have a great selection of Scotch and American whiskies as well. You will find a large selection of curated flights in our bar menu or one of our bartenders can put a flight together for you based on your tastes. All flights are done with 25ml pours.
If you like your whisky in cocktails we’ve got that covered too.
Please join us for a special Westland Single Malt Whiskey promotion at Moshi Moshi Friday August 12th 2016 from 6pm to 10pm while supplies last.
Westland Distillery has been carving out a niche for itself in the Pacific Northwest as America’s premier Single Malt Whiskey garnering numerous awards for its core whiskies along the way.

Regardless of the individual expression, every whiskey at Westland Distillery is underscored by our house style – a sweetness and ease on the palate accompanied by a fruity and complex but ultimately grain-focused finish worthy of its place in this new world.
Distilled from the rich, flavorful barley of Washington State and matured predominantly in new American oak casks in the steady, cool humidity of our seaside home.
