Jessica Joly

Miss Sake USA to Join American Sake Association’s Sake Social Sunday

Sake Social Sunday!

Sunday, May 3 from 8:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.

Via Zoom:

Admission: Free

The American Sake Association is hosting a Sake Social this Sunday! Last week 60 sake fans enjoyed the live tour of Brooklyn Kura Sake Brewery. I had a wonderful time serving as one of the co-hosts, and you can check out the video of the event here.

I’ll be helping out behind the scenes this coming Sunday, as ASA has another great sake-centric event planned. This week’s hosts, Amanda Berkowitz, John Puma, and Timothy Sullivan, will welcome Miss Sake USA, Jessica Joly.

Jessica has been active in the U.S. Sake and hospitality industries for years. With the challenges of COVID-19, Jessica has worked overtime to offer help and support. She’ll talk about how she came to be involved with sake as well as her recent activities and activism in support of the industry.

All are welcome to take part, so please join us this Sunday if you can! Even if it is just to say a quick hello, we’d love to stay in touch with all of you. Please consider joining our Nijikai after party for an interactive and casual drinking party.
