I am going to a pre-season game tonight at AT&T park – in honor of that I post some cool sake at the ball game news for all of you. I am not expecting there will be sake for sale tonight – but soon!
Fast-forward again to Opening Day 2009 for MLB in San Francisco. This April will see the next evolution of sake sales spearheaded by True Sake in the form of selling sake at major sporting events. The first- ever Sake Stand outside of Japan will be found near the “Spring Valley Wine Stand” on the Club Level at AT&T Park for the SF Giants home opener. This stand represents the “beta” stand for future consideration. If we move enough brew then we will open ten more stands at various ballparks around the country before the All-Star Break, and who knows how many more by October. And yes – they chose baseball as the first sport, and we have had only short discussions about football, basketball, and hockey. But, we will make those work as well!
So come to AT&T park to the “True Sake Stand” and order lots and lots of brew. We will be pouring two different sakes – I am not allowed to say which ones, but you know and like them – and yes they are imported! And by no means should you sit in your seat waiting for the “Sake Guy” to come down the isle yelling “Sake! Cold Sake! – Get Your Sake!” He won’t be there. Not this season at least!
