The folks of Beerwalk are hosting their first Sake Walk in San Jose’s Japantown. Sake Walk will take place Thursday, September 15 from 6pm to 9pm.
According to Beerwalk co-founder Jordan Trigg, “Our goal with Sake Walk is to continue the long lasting tradition of Sake San Jose hosted by Yu-Ai Kai for so many years in Japantown.
“We want to continue to raise money for their organization while at the same time encouraging people to explore San Jose’s hidden gem, Japantown, one of three remaining Japantowns in the United States.”
Attendees will be able to taste up to 20 sakes at 20 Japantown shops and business.
Exact tasting locations are yet to be announced, but you can enjoy a free drip coffee at Roy’s Station during the event, and H&R Block will provide complimentary snacks.
Check-in starts at 5pm at 7 Bamboo Lounge (162 Jackson St.).

About Sake Walk in Japantown, San Jose
Tucked minutes away from Downtown San Jose sits the historical Japantown business district. Explore the unique boutique shops, art studios and great restaurants within the community, all while sipping on sake and enjoying the social enthusiasm of shopkeepers and fellow sake walkers!
The Sake Walk was created beyond the idea of sampling sake, but rather to provide an outlet for the local community to come together to explore the neighborhoods and small businesses that help keep the Bay Area great.
