HOT SPRINGS, Ark., Jan. 11, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Origami Sake – Arkansas’ first sake brewery – has been chosen to host the 2024 American Craft Sake Festival in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Origami Sake will collaborate with the City of Hot Springs and the Sake Brewers Association of North America to produce the Saturday, March 2 festival that will take place from 5-10 p.m. in the Bridge Street Entertainment District in the heart of downtown Hot Springs.
