Post by Stefan of Tokyo Whisky Hub.
The next couple of weeks, malt enthusiasts based in and around Tokyo have a plethora of exciting events to choose from... but then again, why bother choosing when you can just as easily decide to go to them all! On November 22nd (Thu), the return of Japanese whisky to the SMWS will be celebrated (for more information, check this post); on December 2nd (Sat), the annual Whisky Festival in Tokyo will be held; the Saturday after (December 8th), SMWS members have their quarterly tasting at Bar "S" (The University of Tokyo) to look forward to; and the day after, it's Hop Revolution. Nothing to do with hip hop, by the way. This is the first edition of what will hopefully turn out to be the craft beer equivalent of Whisky Live. The same minds and hands are behind it, so you know you're in for a wild ride - and you can expect to get a decent education along the way, too (if you need any sort of excuse to get out of the house on a Sunday).
website! Oh, did I mention there will be whiskies courtesy of the chaps at Whisk-e as well? Tickets are available via E+, and if you don't know what that means, don't worry: there is a special page in English for you on Malt City where you can buy tickets, too. If you're looking at your agenda now: the date is December 9th. If you aren't: I'll let you know what you missed in a few weeks.
