SAVOR: An American Craft Beer & Food Experience @ National Building Museum
Jun 1 @ 7:30 PM – 11:00 PM

What:                   Returning to Washington D.C., SAVORSM: An American Craft Beer & Food Experience will unite craft beer lovers and independent brewers this June for the 11th year. Presented by the Brewers Association (BA), SAVOR is hailed as the premier craft beer and food pairing event in the U.S., serving up a selection of small bites perfectly paired with craft beer from independent breweries around the country.

 

                                This year’s list of participating breweries is larger than ever, with 90 small and independent craft brewers set to serve a diverse range of over 180 beers poured by the visionaries behind the brands. Delight your senses, discover new tastes and learn about beer and food pairing under the soaring columns of the historic National Building Museum.

 

When:                 Friday, June 1 and Saturday, June 2, 2018

7:30 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. ET

Where:                 National Building Museum
401 F Street NW 
Washington, D.C. 20001

Who:                     Ninety small and independent craft brewers—60 percent of which were not present at last year’s event, and 36 percent of which are first-time participants—will be serving 180 varieties of craft beer, representing 32 states and Washington D.C. A mouth-watering selection of small plates to pair with your beer will be prepared by Chef Adam Dulye, Brewers Association executive chef and author of newly released The Beer Pantry.

 

Why:                     Craft beer aficionados know that independently brewed beer is designed to dazzle their taste buds – especially when paired with the perfect small plate. As the world of beer becomes increasingly flavorful, there has been a surge of interest in how that can complement the culinary sphere. SAVOR celebrates the delectable harmony between craft beer and cuisine.
