Ready to change your perspective on saké? Willing to explore new worlds, become enlightened and have your expectations altered? Join us for a tour and tasting and you'll find we're not afraid to change things up and surprise even our regular visitors. That's what saké in America is about and this is the place to learn, enjoy and change your perspective.
It is an honor to help you along your saké path and our knowledgeable team take the opportunity personally. Join them in our Forest Grove, Oregon tasting room where you will be immersed in saké information through a guided tour (on the hour at 1, 2 & 3 each day) that will debunk the myths and lay a foundation for a deeper understanding of our age-old beverage. We'll walk you through the saké classifications, key styles, food pairing and ensure you can say "Junmai Ginjo Nigori Genshu" 3 times fast.
You'll leave with enough credentials to be the saké expert on your block and ready to host your own saké party as well as know what to order, and what to avoid, when dining out.
You'll have your choice of three tasting flights that will include offerings from our Oregon Kura (brewery) as well as our Japanese partners the Murai Family and Yoshinogawa. And, on the third Saturday of each month, we offer Sakétini Saturday, an exploration of saké and mixing cocktails. Heresy? Maybe for some but for us it's just another great way to make saké part of every day.
Spring is a time of new beginning and renewal, and it it especially true here at our Forest Grove Kura. Through the 10th to the 24th of April the SakéOne Kura will be undergoing some drastic transformations including a newly refinished floor and the installation of a sleek new bottling line. The only problem is that due to construction the usual tours may be a little more dusty and/or stinky than usual, so please forgive us as it is the price to pay for improved quality of not only our brewery, but our saké as well!
