Didn’t get tickets to Savor ? Don’t feel bad, many people got left out as this year’s event sold out in just 10 minutes. The good news is many local bars will be holding special events leading up to Savor so others can get in on some of the Beer Celebrity action. The Brickskeller has put together an amazing list of events that rivals the Savor event itself.
Wednesday June 2 – THREE FLOYDS
The fantastic midwestern brewery returns to our stage offering many incredibly hoppy gems including the namesake for the famous annual GABF competition, the Alpha King challenge! Meet the Floyds themselves and our old buddy and formerly local brewer Barnaby Struve who now brews there in his welcome home return to the city and taste at least EIGHT of their great beers, many rare brews never before available in the area!
Thursday June 3 – O’DELL Brewing Company!
Many say this is the best brewery in Ft Collins Colorado.For those who don’t know, the New Belgium brewery is in Ft Collins. We’ve been wanting to introduce owner / brewmaster Doug O’Dell and his fantastic lineup of wonderful beers to DC for years, It’s happening June 3rd! Doug is a wonderful speaker and a fantastic brewer! He’ll be offering at least eight of his beers in this truly special evening!
This evening is specially priced for a first timer’s welcome on our stage!
Friday June 4 – The Lupulin Reunu-less
Never has less been more!
Our 3 years of Lupulin Slams became some of the most famous and fabled beer events of all time. The Lupulin Reunulin continued the tradition.
This is quite possibly the most impressive list of industry leaders and trend setters we have ever presented in our 28+ years and over 600 event strong history of beer tastings!
