Saké Fest Heads to PDX

Oregon is already home to America's very own saké brewery, SakeOne, and now the state is debuting its very own saké festival with the kick-off of Saké Fest in Portland. Already a successful event in Philadelphia, Saké Fest is heading west on October 13 to celebrate the art of saké in one of America's most dynamic food and drink cities. We're so excited about this event coming to Portland—it's going to be a great chance to taste some of the world's best sakés under one roof, and to try them alonside food pairings from some of Portland's best restaurants, such as Ping, Biwa, Zilla, Yakuza and Park Kitchen.

Tickets are $47.50 per person and are discounted until September 30, after which they'll cost $65. The ticket price includes access to all saké and food—including rare and premium sakés—as well as a hand-blown tasting cup. So be sure to get your tickets while you can save on the discounted price, and check out the website for more details. We'll definitely be there and hope to see you there too!
