SAVOR Beer Week D.C.
SAVOR – An American Craft Beer and Food Experience descended on Washington D.C. last weekend for another sold out year.
Savor included 144 different craft beers from 72 small craft breweries with representation from many of the nations most well-regarded brewers.
Food pairing included artisan cheeses by American Cheese Society including, Cowgirl Creamery and Point Reyes. Among other offerings were sushi rolls, chocolate truffles and oysters – and of course plenty of good craft beer!
But the week’s activities weren’t all fun and games. On Friday many of the craft brewers in attendance “Climbed the Hill” to the Capitol to meet their Senators and Representatives to rally support for the “Small BREW Act” which would recalibrate excise taxes for America’s small brewers.
