SAVOR Cancellation Notice and FAQ

The Brewers Association has been closely monitoring updates and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as state and local governments as it relates to the COVID-19 pandemic and SAVOR.

The health and safety of our guests, breweries, sponsors, and volunteers are paramount to us. As the situation has continued to develop, and long-term social distancing and closure orders have become more common, the Brewers Association has decided to cancel SAVOR, scheduled for May 15, 2020.

We are grateful to all of you who made plans to attend this year’s event. We are disappointed to be missing our first year at The Anthem, bringing our guests an unforgettable experience with craft beer and food, and introducing you to the personalities behind our small and independent craft breweries.

We look forward to welcoming you to SAVOR next May.

Until then, full refunds will be issued to all ticket buyers. Please note, due to the large number of event cancellations happening worldwide, timing of refunds via our vendor Ticketmaster may be delayed. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

See you in May 2021!
