It’s Back to Sake School! September Tastings at SAKAYA

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

To kick off the fall season, we have visits from three brewers scheduled (so far) for September tastings at SAKAYA.  First from Niigata’s Musashino Shuzo, a brewery founded in 1916, we have the 4th generation brewer Hisashi Kobayashi to introduce us to his Nyukon “Into Your Soul” Tokubetsu Honjozo and Buna-no Tsuyu “Dew Drops”Tokubetsu Jumai sake.  These are new brews for us and we are excited to debut them at the store.  From Tottori, Haruta Okazora of Chiyumusubi Shuzo will pour his creamy, smooth, apple and peach-scented Chiyomusubi Tokubetsu Junmai.  And we are pleased to have Junichi Yageta back from Ishikawa’s Fukumitsuya to share their Kagatobi Junmai Ginjo plus a special SAKAYA sake exclusive!
