New Store Arrivals – It’s Spring Nama Season – Need We Say More?
Nama here, nama there, namas almost everywhere! Folks the fridges are loaded with freshly released spring-unpasteurized sakes that capture the heart and the start of a brewery’s yearly offerings. These brews are for the true sake drinkers who love it raw. Typically, you get to explore sakes in a 3-D-like format as no heating has tampered down the sake’s personality. They are lively and brash, some are bold and vivid, while others dwell in layers of fat and smooth flavors that wake your sake senses!
We have had some of the brews in for several weeks, but I’ve been away so the Newsletter is late. That said even more namas have come on-line so we will have to split them between this February Newsletter and the March effort. And I promise there will be an abundant supply of reviews to go with these brews!
