Sam Calagione chatted with admirers of his Dogfish Head Craft Brewery beers.
In 2012, Sam Calagione met The Flaming Lips when they performed at the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware. That association led the craft beer innovator to team up with the band to create a new beer from his Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, Sam told attendees at SAVOR 2018 in DC on Friday.

The Brewers Association will present the 11th edition of SAVOR as the premier craft food and pairing event in the United States at the National Building Musuem, Friday, June 1, and Saturday, June 2. With each brewery offering at least two beers, SAVOR 2018 will feature more than 180 beers from across the country. (VIP tickets have sold out, but general admission tickets remain for both nights.)
And each of those beers is accompanied by a food pairing, devised by Chef Adam Dulye and his team. SAVOR recently published the list of food and beer pairings, and Parklife DC caught up with Adam to get more insights into how food and beer come together to make SAVOR such an exciting experience.
