Sunday, March 6 from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m.
Brooklyn Kura – 68 34th Street, Courtyard 5/6, Brooklyn
Brooklyn Kura hosts Kimoto Fest featuring Sake Discoveries. Children can stomp rice and enjoy hot amazake, a traditional Japanese sweet, non-alcoholic beverage made from fermented rice. Warm kimoto will be available for the grownups.
Kimoto is a traditional style of sake made with a labor-intensive method that goes back to around the year 1700. Sake makers extract enzymes from the rice by pounding the rice with wooden paddles. The result is a pure yeast that creates a richer, more mellow sake.
