Setting Sun Sake Brewing Co. (SSS) will be hosting a day of celebration and collaboration on October 28, 2018 to showcase some of what America’s Finest City has to offer at one of San Diego's most iconic locations: the Japanese Friendship Garden (JFG) in Balboa Park. 

Day time events include exhibitions from San Diego Kendo Bu, perormance by Genbu Daiko, and chefs sharing Japanese culture with a San Diego flair. We have invited a few of our brewer friends to join in on our day of fun and festivities. The night will conclude with a multiple course “Chef dinner” pairing featuring a 4-chef collaboration with Craig Jimenez (Boodle Fight SD), Davin Waite (Wrench & Rodent), Nate Soroko (Toronado), and Kim Roxas (SSS).
