There aren't too many sake breweries in the US--6 per the world wide web--but there is one just outside of Portland in Forest Grove-- SakeOne. Some torrential rains last Saturday prompted me to finally head out that way give it a swirl (I don't think you technically swirl sake, but I'm not up on my customs.) It was surprising to see the unassuming building so lively, but we were served in no time. At the risk of sounding like some sort of wine cooler afficionado, I will confess that the pear and the lemongrass and coconut sakes were my favorite! My friend who accompanied despite the fact that he 'didn't like sake' even emerged a convert. Success.
