Put some Melvin in your mouth, Savor it!
Good food. Good craft beer. Is there anything better? Obviously the answer is no, so obviously Melvin had to participate in Savor. Now nine years old, Savor is America’s premier craft beer and food pairing event. Each year a handful of the world's best chefs and craft brewers converge in Washington, DC to make taste buds tingle. This year will be Melvin’s first at Savor and we’re going big. From tasting events with the best to brunch with Obama (maybe), join us. It’s going to be delicious!
Nom, Nom, Nom…
Wednesday June 1 | Out-of-Market Night | The Meridian Pint
Melvin, Asheville's Wicked Weed and Louisiana’s Parish Brewing will be kicking off Savor with an Out-of-Market night a Meridian Pint. You can’t get any of this beer in DC on a regular basis, we shipped it via Fedex, so come drink it! We’ll have 2x4, Melvin IPA, Hubert and the (Hop) Shocker, beer from the future, on tap. Event starts at 5PM.
Friday June 3 | Savor Week Highlights plus Melvin IPAs | The Brookland Pint
The Brookland Pint is pouring Savor week highlight beers along with a bunch of Melvin beers! We'll have Drunken Master, The (hop) Shocker, 2x4, Melvin IPA and Hubert on tap. Event starts at 11 am and goes late into the night until 2am.
June 3 & 4 | Savor Grand Tasting | National Building Museum
For two nights 76 craft breweries will serve-up beers paired with gourmet culinary creations. Melvin will be serving 2x4 and Chchch-Cherry Bomb. 2x4 will be paired with a goat gouda gougère. Savor describes this pairing as, “Big, hoppy flavors are calmed on the palate by the texture of the gougère, while the tang of the goat gouda helps cut the richness.” Chchch-Cherry Bomb will be paired with a cherry linzer torte. Savor said the pairing will be, “Tart cherry notes from the beer are balanced by the classic linzer crust, creating a deeper palate reaction to this bite.” This makes us hungry. The Savor Food pairing goes from 7:30PM to 11PM both evenings. Tickets are still available here.
Saturday June 4 | Birch & Barley's 5th Annual Brewers' Brunch | Churchkey
This event is going to be pimp! Melvin’s Jeremy Tofte will join brewers from Sierra Nevada, Allagash, The Lost Abbey, Great Raft and the Spencer Brewery and (hopefully) President Obama for a five course brunch paired with six beers. We invited Obama, he hasn't confirmed or denied attendance yet... NSA, we know you’re reading this, so tell Obama to, “Join us at brunch!” Hubert will be the aperitif or easier said, the liquid app. Event starts at 11am, tickets available here.
Saturday June 4 | Savor Showcase | Churchkey
The party continues after brunch. Nine breweries, 36 taps- Melvin will be on four. There’s going to be lots of good beer here. Show up, if you like good beer. No admission fee, starts at noon.
