When we first broke the news that Savor would be returning to Washington on May 15th we hinted that their might be a venue change…And now we’ve learned that it will taking place at The Anthem, DC’s hottest new venue.
Here’s the deal…
One of three important craft beer gatherings presented annually by the Brewer’s Association, who also sponsor the Craft Brewers Conference as well as the Great American Beer Festival, SAVOR is without a doubt the East Coast’s most significant craft beer gathering.
But when the historically two-day showcase of serious beer and culinary combinations returned to DC for only one night last May, many worried that Brewers Association might discontinue what the Washington Post has called “the gold standard of beer festivals in Washington.”
And now SAVOR is officially ON and returning to Washington, DC on Friday May 15th.
Located at District Wharf, a comprehensive redevelopment of the Southwest Waterfront area, The Anthem first opened its doors October 12, 2017, with a headline performance by the Foo Fighters. And the 57,000-square-foot, $60 million venue, was not only designed to showcase the entertainment world’s biggest names, but also special events like SAVOR.
SAVOR’s setting has always been an important part of this one-of-a-kind event.
“We are continually evolving SAVOR to keep it fresh and exciting,” Ann Obenchain, Marketing Director for Brewers Association told American Craft Beer…
“The Anthem is a state-of-the-art facility that allows us to stretch our imagination and provide new experiences to delight our guests.”
“The larger space is also enabling us to showcase more brewers than ever before…a 30% increase in brewers, which means more food pairings.”
SAVOR ticket sales to the public will take place Feb. 19 at 12pm ET
And if you join either of these important organizations by Feb. 16 for access. Presale codes will be emailed on the morning of the presale.
