February 2018


Posted by Beau Timken in 2018, February, Monthly Intro, Newsletter

Welcome to the 162nd Issue of America’s sake-centric Newsletter. In this very cold and shivery issue read about a recent trip to Japan to participate in a sake “promotion” endeavor, hear about a sake radio program that talked sake and food pairings – did somebody say cheese, check out an NPR article that was based on an interview with this sake geek, circle the date for the Future of Sake, go sake archiving with KJ, it’s spring nama season in the new store arrivals, get sparkly with a Fukushima sparkling sake, and Ask Beau what gets me excited about the American sake market!


In this issue:


Consider this...

Recently, a scientist from the University of California released the findings of a 15-year study that may make sake drinkers sit up and take note. She researched 1,700 subjects how daily activities and routines affected their health. The findings were cause for sake celebration as they discovered that those subjects who consumed two glasses of beer, wine, and I am adding sake, per day were 18% less likely to experience “premature death.” The study gloriously concluded even further that moderate alcohol consumption was actually better for the subjects than exercise.
