SAVOR: An American Craft Beer & Food Experience (the nation’s classiest beer festival) returns to the National Building Museum (401 F St. NW, DC) for its 10th edition for two nights on Friday, June 2, and Saturday, June 3.
Produced by the Brewers Association, SAVOR will again welcome thousands of beer aficionados for its exceptional program of craft beer and food pairings.
This year, SAVOR will feature 86 small and independent craft breweries, 10 more than last year. Sixty-four percent of the breweries were not at SAVOR 2016, and 40 percent of them are attending SAVOR for the first time. Collectively they represent 31 states and DC.
Chef Adam Dulye, Brewers Association executive chef and co-author of CraftBeer.com’s Beer & Food Course, devised the menu this year in collaboration with other chefs, purveyors, Cicerones, and Brewers Association staff.
A ticket includes:
- Craft beer and food (small plate) pairings, a variety of food items and two-ounce tastings of craft beer.
- The opportunity to meet and talk with many luminaries and innovators of the craft beer world.
- A commemorative tasting glass.
- An event program with room for tasting notes.
- An exit gift.
The exit gift is a bottle of an exclusive collaboration beer from Hardywood Park Craft Brewery in Virginia and New Belgium Brewing Company in Colorado.
For the first time this year, SAVOR will feature specialty stations on the second floor with following vendors.
- Nathan Miller Chocolate for chocolate.
- Nathan Anda and Red Apron Butcher for charcuterie.
- American Cheese Society for cheese.
- Chop Tank for oysters.
- Monterey Fish Market for raw bar.
