After many years of a long-long distance relationship, Mike and Tomoko got hitched recently in an outdoor ceremony blending US and Japanese culture. At the end of the ceremony, the tapped a ceremonial firkin which Mike specially made for Tomoko--Extra Pale Ale dry hopped with Sorachi Ace, which is the district she grew up in. They plan to repeat the ceremony in Japan in two weeks, not sure if they can sneak a firkin through as carry on though.
Congrats to Brewer Mike Donohue and his bride Tomoko Hanawa
