Early this month (December 8th), Anna and I had the pleasure of attending the second annual "12 Beers of Christmas" event at Morimoto Asia, Disney Springs, Orlando, FL.
What an incredible event, raising money for Give Kids the World Village, an organization I love and support! I was happy to pay the $64 for the ticket (though Anna bought mine for my birthday present! Thanks babe!)
The event was hosted by Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto himself - he welcomed us to his restaurant with open arms, a hearty handshake, and a tiny glass for sampling the beers flowing inside.
We had the opportunity to purchase a copy of "Mastering the Art of Japanese Home Cooking" and had a packet of Mr Morimoto's ramen signed by the Iron Chef himself.
We had the pleasure of sampling a lot of great food and beer...everything from bluefin tuna tacos to takoyaki, peking duck to sticky sweet ribs. So much great food. The craft breweries did not disappoint, either. We sampled brews from local Orlando breweries like Tactical Brewing and Crooked Can to more nationwide operations like Rogue (Morimoto's Soba Ale on draft!).
Being a big fan of sour beers, my favorite offering was brought by new Miami brewery Sun Lab Brewing. Their Berliner Weisse, Drift Deeper was super juicy and packed with boysenberry, raspberry, blackberry, and blueberry - so good!
Anyways, check out this video I threw together - we really had a great time at the event. This is my first time playing around with Adobe Premiere Pro, so go easy on me! lol. My videos will hopefully get better.
Thanks for stopping by!
