DC: Cherry Blossom Festival Grand Sake Tasting

April 3 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

| $100

cherry_festHeld in the historic Carnegie Library at Mount Vernon Square (801 K Street, NW), enjoy 20 master sake, beer and shochu brewers from Japan as they sample their craft in a taste-around setting. Included amongst those sampling at the event include bottles rarely served in the United States.

Washington, DC-area Japanese restaurants are also on-hand with Japanese small bites to compliment the beverages being sampled. Periodically throughout the night, traditional Japanese performers entertain the crowd.

NEW for 2014 – tasters who find something they like will have the opportunity to bid on bottles of sake, beer and shochu to take home. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the National Cherry Blossom Festival, Inc. – a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
