Two marriages tailored to the bread course

Bread, wine and beer are fermented foods and the combination is excellent. For the course of bread, we provide two mariages: "wine course" to enjoy wine with bread and "wheat course" to enjoy the bread which matches the beer. The wine course includes 10 Hokkaido wines from Chitose Winery, Yamazaki Winery, etc. The wheat course includes five distinctive Hokkaido beers such as the white beer with unique flavor by using wheat germ, and the ale utilizing the sourness and sweetness of apples.
