6pm - 8pm | Special Promotion - $9 for glass of sake + 3 oysters

Tenzan Brewery, located in Saga prefecture in Kyushu.  It was established in 1875, and owned by the Shichida family.  Tenzan refers to Mt. Tenzan, the mountain from which beautiful natural waters flow to nurture the rice and brew the sake.  We will feature their Junmai sake today, which has a calming sweet aroma reminiscent of honey as well as refreshing aroma of green apples.


Introducing the brand new sake happy hour series - Soul of Sake - with Ms Jessica Joly at SakaMai.  Every Monday Ms Joly will be presenting sake from a different brewery and discussing everything from tasting tips and brewing techniques. 

Jessica Joly is an International Kikisake-Shi (Sake Sommelier) and the inaugural Miss Sake USA.  Born to a Japanese mother and American Father, Ms Joly moved between Japan and California at a young age and had a natural understanding for traversing each culture. Spending time in Japan in her early years created a life long interest in Japanese food, drink, and culture, which extended naturally to a career in food hospitality including restaurants such as SakaMai, Soba Totto, Bohemian, Ippudo, and Patisserie Tomoko.
