TASTE – a variety of sakes such as Junmai, Honjozou, Junmai daigingo, Sparkling, Nigori, flavored such as Yuzu, etc. will be available to taste and order.

LEARN – from a Sake Expert, Timothy Sullivan, Sake Samurai *about what is sake, the difference in sakes from regions across Japan, how to taste & serve sake, and pairing sake with non-Japanese food.

A suggested pairing such as cheese will be served.

Timothy is an internationally recognized authority on sake; in 2007, he was awarded by the Japanese Sake Brewer’s Association for his work to promote sake outside of Japan. He is the founder of Urban Sake.

See y’all Wednesday at The Art of Cellaring located at 2301 Portsmouth St. Street parking is available as well as in the lot across the street. Please plan to be on time as the doors here will lock at 10:30AM to reduce interruption and distraction out of respect for our speakers. Remember, EARLY IS ON TIME!! Professional attire is encouraged… please.

Also… please keep in mind that we are all doing this on a volunteer basis (no one is being paid for this) Please stick around to help clean up… Polishing glasses and resetting the space. It takes a village.. 😄
