not far from Kobe, Akashi has been making whisky since 1984 in very
We’ll have specially priced flights that cover the core whiskies Akashi
has to offer and we’ll be digging out some specialty bottles from our
collection to give you a taste of the depth and innovation Akashi has
been developing. In addition we’ll have some great cocktails like Up
From The Deep – a whisky ‘Martini” if you can imagine – at special
prices as well.
We’d also like to take this moment to tell you about a couple of other
special events that are right around the corner that you may want to
mark in your calendars:
April 18th from 6pm to 9pm Ashela Richardson of William Grant and Sons
will be hosting another great event this time featuring whiskies from
The Balvenie Distillery.
On May the Fourth will be featuring KiNoBi gin. Thomas Hatch our award
winning bartender has some delicious cocktails in store for the
discerning gin fan who appreciates a good Star Wars reference.
Reservations are recommended but not necessary. Quantities of some whiskies are limited so earlier the better. 415-861-8285
Please use Flywheel, walk, or have a designated driver for the night of the event.
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.
