Mixing it up with SAKE in Malibu

We recently attended the First annual Sake competition presented by Umenoyado Brewery of Nara, Japan and Banzai Beverage Corporation at a private beachfront residence in beautiful sunny Malibu, California. The United States Bartenders Gulid sanctioned event received over 300 submissions from some of the best mixiologists from Los Angeles. The Judges included Mr. Yoshida from the Umenoyado Brewery, Sake expert Eric Swanson, Eater LA editor Kat Odell and Black Lab Ventures Joel Black.
