, Disney Springs’ newest restaurant, is wasting no time getting to know local providers. They have just announced that next month, they’ll hold a Craft Beer Dinner with Cooked Can Brewing Company of Winter Garden, Florida!
The event is being held to celebrate Hanami, or the annual tradition of cherry blossom viewing in Japan. It’s a special time when friends and family gather for parties under the beautiful trees, which only blossom for a short time each Spring. (Epcot Flower and Garden Festival lovers will recognize Hanami as the name of Japan’s Outdoor Kitchen, and home to the popular Frushi!)
But even more exciting for beer lovers — the dinner will serve to debut a brand new offering from Crooked Can. The craft brewery has created their Cherry Blossom Kolsch exclusively for Morimoto Asia. The brew will only be available for a limited time.
The menu looks pretty spectacular. Here’s a rundown of what guests will enjoy during the evening.
