Koshihikari is, according to Wikipedia, a popular rice strain in Japan. The beer is indicative of its origins. It's light in body, texture and flavor. If it's hopped, it's only gently, as there's just a slight grainy whiff of citrus to the beer. It will be too light for most American drinkers, but with some delicate sashimi, it would be lovely.
Rubicon, were married yesterday at City Hall at 1:01 PM. I was lucky enough to get to join in with the families for a brief celebratory lunch at Zuni Cafe.

Alembic last weekend to catch bartender Thomas Waugh on his last night. The ambitious young Waugh is heading off to the bright lights and no-2 AM-close of New York City, where he's already arranged to work shifts at such famous joints as PDT and Death and Company. Though his ultimate ambition is to end up in London, I have a feeling he'll be in the Big Apple for a while, so look for him on your next trip. As for SF, who will be our next Waugh?
Last weekend was a crazy one.
