Sake Bird - Think Sake When Giving Thanks!

Posted by Beau Timken in 2012, Newsletter, November
True Sake Miwa and I were talking about the November newsletter and it dawned on us that we have not done a Thanksgiving turkey and sake pitch since 2010. The last pitch is pretty funny as I compared turkey facts to sake facts - one clever bird indeed! Read Here »

Likewise in 2008 I dared you sake folks to bring a bottle of sake to your turkey table. A shameless dare at that with a great quote from the classic movie "Risky Business." Read Here »

True Sake In this regard I will not re-invent the wheel imploring you all to think sake when thinking turkey, gravy, stuffing and over eating etc. But we have decided to give you 10 new sakes to think about if you do indeed consider sake over that crazy grape juice.

So herewith are the "New and Improved Terrific Ten Turkey Sakes":
