Sake Selects - Team True Sake Select Monthly Brews

sake selects march 2009Welcome to "True Selects" - featured sakes that are selected and championed by Miwa and Lynette - our two resident sake studs. As we can only stock so many different brands of sake - think limited space - this effort is a way to offer sakes that we wouldn't usually carry. They will select by price-point, uniqueness, availability, and other factors that make these selections unusual for the store.

For March: WE ARE OVER STOCKED! COME GET SOME BREWS AT REDUCED PRICES!

Miwa's Pick: 

Shimeharitsuru "Jun"
