Hello Sake Devotees,

For the fourth installment of For Sake's Sake! Meetup, we will be trying a new venue, and a new Sake theme!

For the venue we have chosen Ramen Dining Bar SORA, an authentic Japanese Izakaya style restaurant. Once again we hope that being surrounded by a Japanese setting and eating delicious Japanese food will make the sake even more enjoyable. The menu will be confirmed shortly, there will be a vegetarian option.

For the sake we have decided to taste 5 different sakes from a single brewer, Kozaemon from Gifu prefecture. This is a small boutique brewery with a small production and a long sake history. By focusing on one brewery we can discover the outcome of designing different varieties of sake by the same brewer, what is the common thread and why each particular type was chosen. The sakes we will taste are:

Kozaemon Sakura Label Nama
Kozaemon House Junmai
Kozaemon Hiyaoroshi
Kozaemon Junmai Ginjo Dewasansan Jikagumi
Kozaemon Yamahai Junmai

We will continue with the same format as ever, 5 small dishes with 5 decent glasses of sake (about 100mL per glass). We will explain a bit about the sake, a bit about the food and then enjoy and share experiences. Price for the whole evening will be €35 which you can pay by Paypal through Meetup or card on the day**. Looking forward to seeing you soon!

**If you are planning to attend and pay cash, please contact me directly or say you will attend in the comments section so I can get an idea of numbers. It seems you cannot either use Paypal or pay cash, it has to be either/or**
