Understanding Sake, with the Sake Ninja himself, Chris Johnson

February 28, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Twin Cities Wine Education is proud to present an evening with one of the top sake experts in the world, Chris Johnson a.k.a. The Sake Ninja.
Chris Johnson, “THE SAKE NINJA,” is a sake sommelier certified by the Sake Service Institute, a member of the board of directors for Joy of Sake and has served as a judge for the U.S. National Sake Appraisal since 2000. Chris is a certified WSET Level 3 Sake Educator and in 2013 earned the distinguished title of Sake Samuari.
I’ve been enjoying sake for well over ten years as a great alternative to my wine life. In fact, during our monumental visit to The French Laundry in 2010 sake was one of the stars of the show.
Straddling the line between beer and wine in terms of fermentation techniques (come to the class and you’ll learn what that means), and proving itself time and time again to be one of the great food pairing beverages in the world (come to the class to learn all about this), plus being incredibly pure in style and minimal in ingredients (hint: come to the class), sake has proven to be an essential part of a good beverage life.
Come learn from the best, as The Sake Ninja steps us through understanding this often mis-understood beverage. We will taste six incredible and varied selections, and learn the ins and outs about this historical, important, and amazing product. YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY!
Seating is limited and a great time is guaranteed. Hope to pour you some sake on Februrary 28th!
