As Oregon becomes known for its beverages, one style of beverage that lurks in the background is saké. One of America’s most well known and awarded saké producers, SakéOne is from Forest Grove, Oregon, just 30 miles west of Portland.
On Saturday, August 26, from Noon-5:00pm, SakéOne will host its SakéOne Summer Festival. This end of summer festival will feature local food vendors, breweries, wineries and of course saké for those 21 years of age or older. Proceeds from the Summer Festival will benefit the Oregon Brewshed Alliance that is dedicated to protecting the beauty and livelihood of Oregon’s brewshed and wildlife habitats.
SakéOne Summer Festival attendees will have the chance to participate in raffles, saké-inspired games and enjoy amazing food and drinks while listening to lively music.
