Miss Sake USA Jessica Joly will host this deep dive into the roots of Japanese sake alongside some old school American soul.

For her seventh virtual Soul of Sake: Lounge and Learn this Friday May 22, Joly welcomes Naomi Obata, sales representative for Tatenokawa. Obata will discuss how the Yamagata Prefecture brewery started collaborating with the Grammy Award-winning French rock band Phoenix.
