True Sake Live – Presents the 9th Annual Sake Day 2014
Nihonshu no Hi is the day of sake in Japan and it’s always on October 1st, but that day is a Wednesday and we need a serious Saturday to do all of the sake celebrating that we have awaiting you! Sake Day is like Octoberfest with a brain, as we not only consume sake but we learn so much while doing it. We consider Sake Day to be the day of sake exploration, because not only do you get to taste over 120 sakes – many not available in the US – but you get to challenge your sake senses with several sake challenge stations that educate you while we libate you! (My word!).
This year we are proud to present to you the cuisine of the Bay Area’s super chef Michael Black of Sebo Sushi, who will actually be challenging our sakes with a more western flared line up. Yes people! Sake does go with western cuisine and we look forward to proving it. Also we have a record number of sake breweries attending from Japan! YES! Talk to the makers, the representatives and the owners and learn even more about your favorite sakes.
But that’s not all! For the first time ever you will be able to order sakes right there on the floor and they will be delivered to you for free anywhere in the Bay Area. Are you kidding me? Nope! Try a sake, like a sake, and then buy that sake just like that! I also hear that the Dassai brewery will be pouring their ultra ultra expensive “Beyond” sake and who doesn’t like super exclusive sakes passing their lips?
We have added an extra hour so the event runs from 4-8pm and that should give you enough time to taste a ton of sakes, chow a ton of food, buy amazing sakes and sake collectables at the auction, all for the benefit of the JCCCNC.
Per usual this event always sells out. So buy early and buy a lot of tickets, because once they are gone they are gone! And you will be left alone to cry into your beer or wine or whatever!
