Hotel Nikko San Francisco PRESSROOM
Jan 10 2014
The Nikko is delighted to participate in San Francisco Beer Week 2014 (February 7 - 16), with a newly designed bar menu paring beer and appetizers to showcase the hand‐crafted artisan BRU. Consistent with Restaurant ANZU's commitment to sustainable and local ingredients, partnering with a local brewery for its first exclusive recipe beer was ideal, and the Working Man Brewing Company will be the featured brewery at the 2014 International Life Cycle of Food Conference in October Executive Chef and Food and Beverage Director Philippe Striffeler is pleased with how well the beer pairs with the ANZU California Cuisine. "I am delighted to serve this ale that crisply complements the restaurant's offerings. The undertones of kaffir lime and ginger harmonize with the Asian essence of ANZU's fare."
Working Man Master Brewer Matthew Stine states that there is a fine line between a hobby and an obsession. "Over the years our brewing has definitely bounced between the two. Recently, the obsession side has dominated in the quest to perfect new recipes, and I'm extremely proud of ANZU BRU."
ANZU BRU has been so well received that Stine has already entered the pale ale into the 2014 World Beer Cup in Denver. "We are excited to showcase our love of beer and commitment to quality in competition with 2,500 other fine beers. I firmly expect to medal with this excellent brew."
