Get ready saké fans, Sake Fest is only a few weeks away, and it looks to be another terrific showcase of premium sakés from Japan and America. This year’s festival takes place on Tuesday, April 7, in the Millennium Ballroom at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel. Festival goers will be treated to samples of premium and rare sakés, as will regionally microbrewed “jizake,” (small, regional saké brewers). You’ll also learn how to pair saké with a wide variety of foods, and local chefs will be on hand to partner a variety of foods with an array of sakés. This is always a great event and yet another example of Philadelphia’s ever-expanding drinks scene. For more event details and to order tickets, check out the Saké Fest website. And if you want to study up on sake before you check out the event, read our saké feature from the Jan/Feb 09 issue.
