Join us before, during and after Kampai Toronto sake festival this Thursday!

Posted on Posted in News and Events

The Kampai Toronto 2014 sake festival is this Thursday, happening right beside our brewery!  We will be open from 12 noon until late in the evening on May 29, so please do pay us a visit.

For those who wish to arrive at the Distillery District prior to the 6:30 Kampai start, we will be doing a Tasting Tour at 5pm ($15+HST including guided tasting of 4 of our fresh local sakes), or customers can just have a casual look around the brewery and stop at the tasting bar..

During Kampai take a break from the action and check out the brewery – we have a door leading to the brewery directly adjacent to our display tables on the Kampai floor.  At our tables we will have 8 sakes and 1 sake cocktail available for tasting.

After Kampai we will be open late, so you can pick up bottles of sake to take home as well as sake serving ware and other gift items, or just join us for a nightcap!

On the evening after Kampai  (May 30) George Restaurant will be hosting a Sake Dinner featuring our sakes, and our head brewer Greg Newton will be on hand to discuss the sakes being served.  Details at www.georgeonqueen.com.

Enjoy the festival!!   (tickets are still available at www.kampaitoronto.com)
