Public tickets for SAVOR go on sale on March 21st!

If you haven’t heard, SAVOR (held June 1 and 2 at the National Building Museum) is one of the premiere craft beer events not just in DC, but in the country. In fact the Washington Post calls it the “Gold Stand of beer festivals in Washington, and one of the most important beer festivals in America.”

Tickets go on sale to the public at noon, Wednesday, March 21. The price of $135 (plus fees) might seem hefty, but it’s well worth it! I’ve been attending for about ten years now and it is always fantastic. In addition to unlimited beer samples, there is a lot of great small dishes prepared to pair with the beers available.

This year has one of the best line-ups I can remember, and I can’t wait to try some of the rare and out of market beers. Every year I prepare a spreadsheet like the one just to the right here. There are over 140 beers and it is important to have a game plan to ensure you get to taste all the super rare beers. A week or two before Savor I’ll write a thorough preview that includes the beers I’m most excited to try, my Savor spreadsheet, and Untappd rankings of every beer.

Here are the breweries that caught my attention when looking at the 2018 participants:

  • Allagash
  • Arizona Wilderness
  • Central Waters
  • Cloudburst
  • Country Boy
  • Crooked Stave
  • Fremont
  • Lawson’s Finest Liquids
  • Maine
  • Perennial
  • Rhinegeist
  • The Bruery
  • The Lost Abbey
  • Upland

Get your tickets here.

Cost is $135. SAVOR: An American Craft Beer & Food Experience has two nights, June 1 and June 2 from 7:30-11pm.

I like craft beers, a lot. So far I've had over 4,600 different beers and have been to 126 breweries in 27 states plus DC. Always looking to try something new, except when it is from the Bud Light "____ ____ rita" family. Follow my adventures in craft beer on Untappd at
