Cigar City Brewing Presents at SAVOR: An American Craft Beer & Food ExperienceMarch 31, 2014 | Category: Beer Event
Tampa, FL– On May 9 and 10, Cigar City Brewing will be one of 76 small and independent craft breweries represented at SAVOR: An American Craft Beer & Food Experience. Presented by the Brewers Association and in its seventh year, SAVOR is the premier beer and food pairing event in the U.S.
SAVOR returns to the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. following its New York City debut in 2013. As in past years, each brewery will pour two of its craft beers, accompanied by a reception-style sampling of sweet and savory small plates designed by Brewers Association culinary consultant Adam Dulye, chef/owner of The Monk’s Kettle and The Abbot’s Cellar in San Francisco.
“We’re extremely excited to be part of SAVOR. It will be a great opportunity to experience all of the different beer and food pairings provided by so many excellent breweries. I’m especially looking forward to sharing our barrel aged beers and barrel aging techniques during our salon with Hardywood Park Craft Brewery,” said Wayne Wambles, Brewmaster at Cigar City Brewing.
“SAVOR provides a world-class and unparalleled atmosphere where small and independent craft brewers showcase their flavorful beers alongside a menu of strategic pairings,” said Julia Herz, craft beer program director at the Brewers Association. “Attendees also have the unique opportunity of being personally served by the visionaries behind the brands.”
During SAVOR, Cigar City Brewing will be serving Invasion Pale Ale paired with
Broccoli Rabe and Pancetta Stuffed Mushrooms and Guava Grove American Sour Ale, paired with Strawberry Rhubarb Pie.
