SAVOR welcomed 110 independent craft breweries to The Anthem in DC on June 24.
SAVOR this year was full of surprises. Yes, it was still the preeminent gathering of craft brewers serving up beers in a large conference-style format. But this year, SAVOR was held at The Anthem, DC’s 6,000-person music venue, and it decidedly felt more like a nightclub event and less like a curated exhibit.
SAVOR: An American Craft Beer & Food Experience is unlike any craft beer event. It’s a sensory adventure that answers the tantalizing question: what if we paired some of the best craft brewers with some of the finest chefs for a single night of culinary bliss?
After a two-year hiatus, the Brewers Association’s SAVOR event returns to Washington, DC, on Friday, June 24, at The Anthem.
Tomme Arthur of The Lost Abbey presented some lovely takes on popular sour beers at SAVOR 2019 on May 17, 2019.
Presented by the Brewers Association, the 12th edition of the Savor Craft Beer and Food Experience recently welcomed more than 90 small and independent craft breweries, many serving two or three of their beers, from around the country.

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, who opposes DC Initiative 77, presents at the RAMMY Awards on June 10, 2018.
Some of the best and the brightest received recognition lately from the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington (RAMW) at the annual RAMMY Awards, held as a black tie gala at the Washington Convention Center.
While the lavish awards program was the focus of the day, many awardees and the association itself spoke in opposition to DC Initiative 77, which would eliminate tipped wages at restaurants in favor of a universal wage by 2026 if enacted in a vote on Tuesday, June 19.
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.
