Our friends at Kanpai London Craft Sake have launched a crowdfunding campaign to bring a new sake bar to life.
“We’ve rapidly outgrown our nanobrewery, and now we’re excited to make the leap to a much larger premises to produce even more craft and experimental sake – and most importantly to build a tap room so you can come and enjoy super fresh sake, overlooking where it’s made.”
Sounds like a great plan from an English brewer doing very exciting things. You can learn more about them here, or just head over to their page and help them realize their dream of expanding sake’s presence in London and pioneering true, English sake.
