Our founder Frank Rodgers talks with Long Beach-based sake sommelier and shochu advisor Greg Beck about how he went from a high school student in Arizona taking German classes, to an "accidental" expert on the Japanese craft of sake making. We’ll follow Greg’s path from his first trip to Japan, his exploration of sake breweries and festivals, and his blossoming career as a sommelier while working as a journalist in New York, then returning to the West Coast.
