SAVE THIS DATE: MARCH 20TH (The Japanese Brewer's Union will be in SF)MARCH 20TH - True Sake and Sebo Restaurant will host 30 different sake breweries from Japan for two outstanding tastings on the same day. The first tasting in the early afternoon is targeting restaurant owners, media, sake distributors etc. And the second tasting is open for the public.As we are the host we want to make this event very casual but very hands-on, and I would encourage any sake lover to attend. When was the last time that you got speak to 30 brewery owners who were hand pouring their own sakes? It is a perfect tasting to get those questions answered and also is a great opportunity for Japanese brewers to see the true "saviness" of the Bay Area sake market. Please my dear readers make me proud, come and blow them away with your knowledge, and for those sommeliers, restaurant owners, and media-types come and make some serious contacts.

Please phone the store - 415.355.9555 - and we will put your name on the list of invitees for each of the tastings. (There may be a nominal fee for the public tasting)
