True Sake Newsletter August 2012

Posted by Beau Timken in 2012, August, Monthly Intro, Newsletter
Dear Sake Drinker,

Welcome to the August Issue of America's sake-centric Newsletter. In this special "Anniversary" issue read about the 5th Anniversary of the Sake Challenge, the 7th Annual Sake Day, and True Sake's 9th Anniversary, climb a Green Pine sake from Kyoto in the Beau-Zone Layer, and finally check out sake brewery tours that you can go on!

In this issue:

Consider this...

What is the prototypical glassware for sake? There isn't really one! Riedel tried to make one but it looked very much like a Chardonnay glass. Do different classes of sake need different glasses like wine? Not really! It does help with acidity and sweetness for sure, but at the end of the day it's what you like holding in your hand that counts. Currently we have over 20 different sake glasses to choose from and for certain one will speak to you.
