Event: -
Taste up to 50 different Japanese beverages
Perth's biggest sake festival this December! Have you ever been to a sake festival here in Australia?



Here is your opportunity to taste over 50 different types of beverages from all areas of Japan, including types of sake that you don't normally see in restaurants or liquor stores. The sake is brought straight from the shuzo (sake brewer), therefore prices are reasonable as they do not go through several companies.

The organisers of this event also travel all over Japan from Akita to Hiroshima to the most remote locations to find the best sake at the best prices!



Some of these include:
Sake
Plum wines
Japanese craft beer
Pale Ale
Pilsner
Weizen
Stout
Summer Hagi
Suo-Oshima Mikan beer



This is not just a liquor/beer festival, however, as you can also try Japanese food from $5 per plate.



You can taste as many as you want and then buy whichever one or ones you like the most and take them home.



Authentic Japanese beer, which is produced solely in Japan (and not in China or Thailand as many are), is also available for you to taste and also buy to take home. This includes "Yamaguchi Kogan" which is a Japanese craft beer from the Yamaguchi prefecture which is in southern Japan.



There will be experienced sake professionals at this event also, so you will be able to ask as many questions as you like about this great tasting beer or sake!



Entry to this Festival is FREE, however, it will cost $15 for a wristband with tabs for 10 tastes of sake or plum wine plus a ceramic sake cup to use for tasting. Some of the super premium sake will cost 2 tabs, however, these are "special" and worth it!

This is a popular event as sake and Japanese beer is becoming more and more popular amongst the serious beer drinkers of Perth! It is always great to try something from another country and here you will know these are authentic products that you can try and buy.

If you pre-order your tickets for the event, you will be in the running for a door prize of sake, plum wine and Japanese beer which will be awarded on the day.

ABOUT SAKE
For those of you who are not familiar with sake, you may well ask "what is sake?" Sake is an alcoholic drink which is derived from rice and water that has gone through a fermentation process. Traditionally referred to as 'Nihonshu', this actually means "wine of Japan".

Sake has always been a huge factor in the history of Japan, and it dates back to about 500BC. Nowadays they have very modern methods of brewing the sake and it has become a scientific art. It is mainly made during the winter months when the rice farmers have finished harvesting their crops. There are different qualities of sake, as with all liquor, and these are based on brewing technique.

There are now five main types of sake, and these are:

Junmai-shu
Honjozo-shu
Ginjo-shu
Daiginjo-shu
Namazake.

Each type of sake arises from a different brewing method and by changing these methods of brewing, different flavours will be produced. Once you open a bottle of sake it will last for about 6 weeks if you do not drink a lot! However, after about 2 weeks, the flavour and scent can diminish. It should be kept in the fridge and it can be kept unopened, for about 2 years from the date of manufacture.

All sake, plum wine, shochu, beer is available for purchase and take home each day.
