BJA Event: Premium Japanese Sake Tasting at Brewery Het Anker

Premium Japanese Sake Tasting at Brewery
Het Anker
Het Anker酒造にて高級日本酒のテイスティング

Friday 17 November 2017

Thanks to the generous support of Brewery Het Anker and Brewery Konishi,
the BJA has the pleasure to invite you to an exclusive guided tour through the beautiful and historic brewery buildings of Het Anker, followed by a sake tasting with matching appetizers.

Brewery Het Anker started brewing beer 5 generations ago in the Grand Beguinage of Mechelen.
Over the years, it developed into an internationally renowned brewery and their “Gouden Carolus” specialty beers have won several international awards. Het Anker has recently started the distribution of premium Japanese sake by Konishi Brewing Company Ltd (Hyogo prefecture), one of the oldest sake breweries in Japan,
with a history dating back to 1550.

Do not miss this exceptional opportunity!
