True Sake Newsletter July 2012

Dear Sake Drinker,

Welcome to the July Issue of America's sake-centric Newsletter. In this very special issue see what sakes work best for your summer grilling sessions, learn who won medals at the IWC in Tokyo, find out why there is more to life than Juyondai, discover that sake is medicinal, read about a special nigori sake in the Sake Spotlight by Takami, get your Cowboy on, and learn why visiting a brewery in the summer may be more informative than visiting during brewing season.

In this issue:

Consider this...

A "Go" is a measurement of sake. A typical wooden masu is called a Go for the quantity held within. A yongobin is the wine-sized bottle of sake, which is 24 fluid ounces. Yon is the word for 4, so Yon (4) Go (masu) Bin (bottle) means that there are four masu pours in each bottle. Oh and by doing the math you will deduce that a Go is about 6 ounces.
