Sake Tasting

Join us in March for our Sake Tasting event! The Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) and JASM are hosting this event where you will be able to try many varieties of sake, socialize, network, learn about sake and most importantly have fun!

During the event, sake expert from Sake Story, Chris Griese will be giving a presentation to help you better appreciate the sake you will be tasting. Chris received his Advanced Sake Professional Level II Certificate in Tokyo, 2010. After his seminar, you will know about how to serve and store sake, and be able to distinguish the many styles and types of sake.
