We are getting an amazing response from our tremendous vendors who are very excited to share a ton of new sakes to the Bay Area. As usual we get 100% participation from importers and distributors, which is pretty incredible for an industry event. This is a testimony to how inclusive and special SAKE DAY is and we are incredibly proud of the fact that the sake industry comes together to celebrate this ancient libation in the very modern Hotel Kabuki setting.
Speaking of Hotel Kabuki we also have a special room rate for guests of SAKE DAY, but act quickly because the rate goes up closer to the event.
Featured breweries have been committed including Izumibashi from Kanagawa Prefecture. Meet brewery rep Kayoko Abe who will be pouring a stellar line up of their dragonfly inspired brews including several offerings that are not yet registered in the US. Likewise meet and interact with several famous local craft sake makers including Jake and Noriko Myrick from Sequoia Sake and Yoshi and Lani Sako from Den Sake Brewery.
And reintroduce yourself to David Sakamoto, who is not only a SAKE DAY veteran, but is now an importer – Jizake Quest - of some killer brews from Japan. David said he will throw down Miyagi prefecture’s Kanbai Shuzo makers of Miyankanbai, Niigata Prefecture’s Koshimeijo Shuzo makers of Yamashiroya, Aomori Prefecture’s Hachinohe Shuzo makers of Mutsu Hassen, and lastly Niigata Prefecture’s Taiyo Shuzo makers of Taiyozakari.
