Tickets to SAVOR 2013, the Brewers Association’s annual craft beer and food showcase to be held in New York City June 14-15, go on sale to the public April 17, the craft beer industry group announced.
Members of the American Homebrewers Association and the Brewers Association, however, can get a one-day head start for a limited number of tickets for the two sessions, both of which run from 7:30-11 p.m.
The event, which features beer and food pairings, will take place at the Altman Building, an event space, and the adjoining Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 W. 18th St., Manhattan. For the past five years the event was held in Washington, D.C.
Attendees will be able to sample beers from 76 small and independent U.S. breweries, hailing from 31 states and a diverse array of food pairings designed by Chef Adam Dulye, co-owner/chef of San Francisco’s The Monk’s Kettle and James Beard Award-semifinalist Abbot’s Cellar. Brewers will participate in private salons during the two evenings.
Tickets for the grand tasting are $170, while tickets for the grand tasting and private salons are $195. The brewers group said tickets in the past have sold out in a matter of minutes.
“With the craft beer industry continuing to expand at an extraordinary rate, SAVOR takes the opportunity to showcase the contribution America’s small and independent craft brewers have made to the advancing food arts world,” the Brewers Association, based in Boulder, Colo., said in a press release. “This unique experience allows beer lovers to gain a better understanding of the diverse offerings from today’s brewers and why craft beer is gaining a place at restaurants and homes across the country”
The list of beers to be served is available on the event web site.
Tickets will be available to the general public beginning at Noon (EDT) on April 17 through Ticketmaster.
