)-- Four dozen independent craft brewers have been selected to showcase the pleasures of fine food enjoyed with amazing beer in Washington, D.C., May 16-17. SAVOR: An American Craft Beer & Food Experience will highlight the culinary delights of beer as part of the Brewers Association's annual American Craft Beer Week.
Julia Herz, spokesperson for the association, said, “SAVOR offers a truly unique opportunity to be personally served by many of America’s most innovative and famous brewery owners and brewers. Meeting the makers, access to the educational salons, and the pairing menu are why SAVOR is a must attend event.” http://www.savorcraftbeer.com
Today, American beers are judged to be among the world’s best and have earned a respected place at the table alongside wine. In fact, two-thirds of today’s wine drinkers consume beer. This past summer National Public Radio observed, "Beer has gone from the House of Commons to the House of the Lords.” Additionally, Gallup in July 2007 confirmed beer is still the most popular adult beverage in the U.S.
Jimmy Reyes of Reyes Beverage Group, Supporting Partner of SAVOR, stated, "This is going to be a tremendous celebration. Everyone from true beer aficionados to those who simply enjoy flavorful food and drink will take pleasure in a day of rubbing shoulders and sharing craft beer with acclaimed American brewers in Washington, D.C., a beer-loving city since its inception."
