Members Only! Spears and Beers

Friday, August 26 8pm

After discovering our summer intern, Andrew Hong, not only brewed his own beer but is also a world ranked competitor in the martial art of Naginata, we spent the summer drinking his beer and imagining him cutting people into pieces.  We’re excited to share this fun with you in the first of what we hope will be many Machine member appreciation evenings featuring spears and beers.

Andrew will give a brief presentation of his home crafted beer after which he will delight and terrify us with a demonstration of the traditional Japanese art of the curved spear with classic moves like Oguruma No Mieare.
