Dive into the mystique of Japanese sake, illuminated by the esteemed Rick Lopus of Great Lakes Wine & Spirits. With a career spanning over 35 years, from being a restaurateur and retailer to supervising training and education at Michigan’s largest wine and spirits wholesaler, Rick is a fount of knowledge in the world of wines and spirits.

Here, Rick casts the spotlight on the exquisite world of sake. While often likened to wine or beer for context, sake stands in its own unmatched category. The fermentation process might share similarities with beer, but that’s where the parallels end. With its array of rice varieties and unique milling classifications, sake is an art form unto itself.

Join Rick as he deftly navigates the beauty and intricacies of Japanese sake. From understanding the special Sakamai rice to discerning the classifications by milling ratios, you’ll embark on a journey that celebrates sake as more than just a drink — it’s an experience. And what better way to comprehend than by tasting?

Workshops run from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.
So if you’re looking to make a full evening of it, we recommend dinner and drinks at FRAMEbar, our more casual side, before or after class.
