WHERE: True Sake 556 Hayes Street

WHAT: Nova Brewing Co. from Los Angeles County will be pouring several of their high-end unpasteurized brews. 

Meet the makers, James Jin and Emiko Tanabe! Come say hello to the folks who are putting the C in Craft sake from the LA area.

James Jin and his partner Emiko Tanabe met while studying to get their Sake Sommelier certifications at Sake School of America located in Downtown Los Angeles. They both had a lot of interest in sake and as a Japanese native, Emiko was more interested in promoting Japanese foods and culture, while James was more interested in how rice and water turns into this beautiful beverage known as sake. 

James went to Japan and got trained at Inaba Shuzo in Ibaraki, Japan while Emiko stayed in the US, purchased an old winery/brewery and took over the operations. We grew from brewing small batches with only one person (James) to a team of 3 constantly brewing large batches weekly while improving efficiency and quality over the past 4 years.
