|Sake Brewery Tours 2011
Yes sake folks you are very lucky indeed! My buddy Etsuko Nakamura is hosting her sake brewery tours again this winter. If you have never been to a sake kura then you have not lived! Why not put that finishing touch on your sake adventure by spending time in the breweries themselves. I will say this - the only place that I can learn about sake is in the place where they make it.
Several years back I coined a term called "alcho-tourism" which is basically traveling to learn about and drink booze! What's cooler than that? (Especially if the education value is as high as the quality of the sake.) If you have ever wanted to visit Japan and more specifically several breweries in Japan this is the package that you have been waiting for.
TRUE SAKE DISCOUNT - And yes as Etsuko is a friend to True Sake she has offered a discount for you great readers! I say take her up on it!
Herewith is her offer:
