Special Events March 2007
March 20th "30 Brewery Night"
Note: For those who reserved spots you must call the store to secure your entry immediately!
True Sake, Sebo and The Japanese Sake Brewers Union are pleased to announce a very special evening on March 20th in Hayes Valley. Over 30 different sake breweries will be pouring their goods in a very intimate setting for a one-of-a-kind sake tasting. Space for this event is extremely limited and a list has already been formed. If you reserved a spot it is imperative that you phone True Sake to pay your admission in advance. Your reservation does NOT secure your entry.
|• When:||March 20th from 6-8PM|
|• Where:||Sebo Restaurant in Hayes Valley
(Across the street from True Sake) 517 Hayes Street (cnr Octavia)
|• What:||A super opportunity to not only taste over 112 sakes, but speak to the makers themselves who will guide you through the reason and methods for making their particular brews. Basically we are bringing Japan to your doorstep. Some of these breweries export to the US and some do not as of yet! From the famous Sudo Honke brewery (Est. 1147) to the secretive Kenbishi kura from Hyogo, and from Kotsuzumi to Daimon Shuzo from Osaka, which will be represented by none other than Yasutaka Daimon, who I interviewed for this Newsletter.|
|• Why:||These brewers want to see for themselves the interest level for sake in the west, especially in the Bay Area. They have heard that we are leading the country in terms of sake sales and appreciation so I am challenging you good people to make an impression on them.|
|• How Much:||The event will be priced at $50/taster and there is a limit of 70 tasters. I will also warn you now that the event will be cozy, as we did not want to rent out a vast ballroom. It will be intimate and extremely informative. Tasters will also receive a complementary sake glass. There will be very light fare on hand.|
There will be a "Trade/Industry Tasting" earlier in the day from 2pm- 4pm for restaurant owners, sommeliers, distributors, importers and media. This event is closed to the public. Please contact True Sake to secure your participation.
Please phone to secure your spot! The initial phone list does not gain you entry. You must phone 415.355.9555 and pay for you entrance in advance. There will be no door sales.
