Sake Tasting and Tsumami Pairing

The evening of December 11th, the Japan-America Society of Greater Austin (JASGA) will bring a joy of Sake to Fukumoto Sushi & Yakitori Izakaya with Genji Sake.

Have you wanted to learn about the different types of sake, how you serve it, and what tsumami (nibbles) you pair it with?  Four simple ingredients combine to make this powerful, rice-based alcoholic beverage.

Join us in the Fukumoto Sushi and Yakitori restaurant for sake tasting. Five types of sake will be served and paired with different Japanese tumami. 

This event is open to the public and free event.  (Must be at least 21 years of age to attend.)
