Well, DC Beer has learned that after 14 years in DC, at 3 locations, SAVOR is done. Le sigh.

The Brewers’ Association confirmed this with a series of statements, quoted below.

So there you have it. Bummer.

Recall that in 2019 we–I–erroneously reported that that year’s SAVOR would be the last, but having taken off 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic, the event returned, to The Anthem, in June of 2022. For both 2019 and 2022, SAVOR shrank from Friday and Saturday to just Friday, and the events of “Savor Week” in DC dissipated as well.


Putting on the premier gala of the Brewers’ Association was hard work, with a lot of moving parts, and we at DC Beer thank the BA, the chefs, the breweries and their staffs, and event staff and volunteers for all their efforts in making SAVOR an annual marquee event.

We suspect that next July’s hill climb will have a few out of market events associated with it, and as always, we’ll keep you updated on those.
