SAVOR returns to DC May 9-10. The week before this big event promises plenty of great events in the DC area. Although we have day-by-day line-ups posted, it may also be helpful for the #DCBrews community to check out what some players that are going above and beyond will be offering. Here are the events for Dupont Circle's Scion Restaurant (2100 P Street NW) and its sister restaurant, Crios Modern Mexican (2102 P Street NW). For more of DCBeer's #SAVOR Week coverage, click here.

Beer & Cheese: An Evening with Funkwerks, Odell, & Right Proper
Join Scion as they celebrate one of their favorite pairings, cheese and beer. Odell and Funkwerks will feature 10 selections on draft, as well as host a private tasting and Q+A session. For this special event, out-of-market breweries Funkwerks and Odell have each sent five special drafts, rarely available in DC. Additionally, Right Proper has carefully paired each beer with a selection from their very own cheese counter. (Note: Right Proper will not be serving beer at this event.)
In addition to the main event, the owners of Funkwerks and Odell will host a private, guided tasting of their beers, accompanied by cheese pairings. Each brewery will feature a special beer, served exclusively at the private tasting.
Tickets are required for the private tasting. Tickets are $25 and include 4 oz samples of six different beers and accompanying cheese pairings. Space is extremely limited. To purchase tickets, please visit:

The Scorpion King: Mezcal Aged Casks

Crios Modern Mexican, DC Brau, and Union are excited to announce "The Scorpion King: Mezcal Aged Casks." DC Brau will invite their friends from Baltimore, Union Craft Brewing, for the latest installment of the DC / Baltimore rivalry. 

On the heels of Cinco de Mayo, DC Brau and Union have each agreed to prepare a specialty cask conditioned with Scorpion Mezcal (Reposado). Distilled in Mexico, mezcal is often described as a smokier version of tequila.
