Savor: Craft Beer and Food in D.C.

Posted on 02.29.08 10:00PM under Events, News, Pairing, Tasting

Savor LogoThe Brewer’s Association is organizing a big beer and food even in Washington DC called Savor. It’s coming in a few months, May 16 and 17 to be exact. Many of the greatest brewers in the country will be there, showcasing their beers and sharing the joy of matching those beers with food.

Participating breweries include Flying Dog, Avery, Russian River, Allagash, Dogfish Head, Smuttynose, Stone, and a ton of others.

This is a huge event, with great speakers lined up too. Garrett Oliver, perhaps the biggest name in beer and food pairing, will be there. You can see Jim Koch, Sam Calagione, Randy Mosher and others speak in intimate salon sessions.

And there’s a ton of great food being served. Dozens of appetizers, soups, skewers, and sweets made to highlight a variety of beer styles are going to be there, provided by the same caterers that congress uses!

Basically, if you can make it to our nation’s capital city in the middle of May, you owe it to yourself to make it to this event. There are three sessions, one Friday night, one Saturday afternoon, and one Saturday night. It’s $85 for a session, which is a bargain to get to hobnob with today’s stars of the brewing world. Plus, it’s a great excuse to go see some great history in Washington DC’s famous museums and monuments. Not to mention the brewpubs in and around DC.
