The Joy of Sake is the world’s largest sake celebration outside Japan. This year it brings 381 fresh sakes in peak condition from every brewing region of Japan and 10 from the U.S. All have been judged by a panel of Japanese and American sake experts at the U.S. National Sake Appraisal, which takes place in Honolulu each July. Fresh bottles of all the sakes, including gold and silver award winners, are opened for guests to enjoy at The Joy of Sake.

Now in its fifteenth year, The Joy of Sake drew a record 1,600 sake enthusiasts in Honolulu on July 31. After Las Vegas it heads to Tokyo, where it finishes its world tour on Nov. 5.

Tickets are $75 per person ($85 at the door) and are available online at
