Sake Tasting @ Wasabi Steakhouse & Sushi

Join fellow Bacchus Club members on January 23 for a sake tasting at Wasabi Steakhouse & Sushi in Novi. We will taste five sakes (two warm and three chilled) served with Edamame, Gyoza and California Roll. The cost per person is $30 plus tax & tip.

Sake is sometimes referred to as rice wine. However, unlike wine, in which alcohol is produced by fermenting sugar that is naturally present in grapes and other fruits, sake is produced by means of a brewing process more like that of beer. To make beer or sake, the sugar is needed to produce alcohol must first be converted from starch. 

The brewing process for sake differs from the process for beer, in that for beer, the conversion from starch to sugar and from sugar to alcohol occurs in two discrete steps. But when sake is brewed, these conversions occur simultaneously. Furthermore, the alcohol content differs between sake, wine, and beer. Wine generally contains 9%–16% ABV, while most beer contains 3%–9%, and undiluted sake contains 18%–20% (although this is often lowered to about 15% by diluting with water prior to bottling).
