SAKE, Beer & CA Wines
What's more fun than a barrel of monkeys? Beer that's been monkeying around in wine, oak, whiskey barrels ofcourse! Plus a couple other gems to round off the night.
California wine is wine made in the U.S. state of California. Almost three quarters the size of France, California accounts for nearly 90 percent of American wine production. The production of wine in California is one third larger than that of Australia. If California were a separate country, it would be the world's fourth largest wine producer.
Sake has its roots in Japan, where the spirit has been produced for almost 2,000 years. Originally, sake was produced solely by the government until the 10th century, when private citizens gained the right to brew the tasty concoction. Since that time, Japan has continued to perfect the process, but the popularity of sake caused many entrepreneurs in the U.S. to make their own. American sake isn't nearly as prized as the Japanese version, but it's becoming more and more recognized as an above-average version. October 1 is officially recognized in Japan as Sake Day.
