Best of 2010... Business as Usual... 2011 Tasting Calendar.

Best of 2010

There's much reflecting going on right now about what the best beers of 2010 were. We're not above a little idle speculation ourselves. So we're dabbling with some technology courtesy of Google, and offering everyone the chance to join in. If you follow this link:, you can take a survey on what the best beers on offer at Hashigo Zake in 2010 were. (Also, please discreetly let us know if our experiment with the survey tool let's us down.)

We'll reveal the results in a week or two. Enjoy!

Business as Usual

It's another lightweight summer edition this week. But the kegs continue to rotate and the variety is as good as ever.

Right now we're steadily working our way through our biggest ever shipment of American beer. For the foreseeable future we can guarantee that you can come in and find at least one and maybe more of our taps dedicated to beer from Green Flash, Bear Republic, Coronado or Ballast point. And if the one you were hoping for doesn't happen to be on tap when you come in, we're steadily finding room on our shelves for the bottled versions.

Tasting Calendar

We're working on our tasting calendar for 2011. We can't confirm any events yet, but here are some predictions:

  • A sake and food matching evening.
  • A tasting of beers from the Squatters chain in Salt Lake City, including the American version of the Mussel Inn's Captain Cooker.
  • One or more tastings built around the best of the aforementioned shipment of Californian beer.

More info in the coming weeks.
