SAVOR™ Lineup and New Venue Bring Flavor to Iconic Beer and Food Pairing Event

Tickets available February 19


SAVOR™: An American Craft Beer & Food Experience returns to Washington, D.C., on May 15 for its 13th year, at The Anthem. Presented by the Brewers Association, SAVOR pairs flavor-forward, independent craft beer with sublime small bites to create an unforgettable culinary experience for beer lovers and foodies alike.

New for 2020, SAVOR moves to The Anthem, D.C.’s new $60 million waterfront venue, which allows for a 30 percent increase in breweries. The event will highlight a diverse array of 118 small and independent craft breweries from across the country, whose beers will be paired with a lineup of food thoughtfully designed for each of the more than 200 beers served. Such intricate menu items in the past have featured 3 Sons Brewing Company’s Pick Your Own Belgian Style Fruit Ale, paired with corn madeleine and chicken liver mousse.

SAVOR guests will also have the unique opportunity to sip, savor, and interact with many of the brewery owners, a dynamic lineup of acclaimed personalities behind the beers.


One hundred and eighteen small and independent craft breweries – ranging in production size from less than 1,000 barrels to over 1,000,000 barrels – will participate in SAVOR. Of those 118 breweries, 49 are first-time participants and 73 of are coming from regions outside the mid-Atlantic.

Chef Adam Dulye, the Brewers Association executive chef and author of The Beer Pantry, will lead a talented, award-winning culinary team of chefs, Cicerones®, and purveyors to create a menu of more than 200 food pairings.


The Anthem, 901 Wharf St. SW, Washington, D.C. 20024


May 15, 2020, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
