Savor Announces 2011 Brewery Lineup, Ticket Sale Dates

Savor, D.C.'s classiest boozefest, announced its full list of 33 breweries for 2011, including noted heavyweights, local talent, and some very exciting new breweries from around the country.

The beer and food festival, which returns to its original two-day format for its fourth year, will take place June 3 and 4 at the National Building Museum. Tickets cost $110, plus $30 for the optional educational salons, and go on sale March 3. (Pre-sale tickets are available to American Homebrewers Association and the Brewers Association members on March 1.) But enough minutiae: What will we be drinking?

The D.C. area is ably represented by Flying Dog, Mad Fox, Brewer's Art, DOG Brewing, Ruddy Duck, and Flying Dog, who is sponsoring this year after its absence last year. (For more detail, read this excellent piece by The Lagerheads on how Savor selects its breweries.) Fellow nerds will be excited to see some cult breweries added to the mix for the first time, including California's AleSmith, Florida's Cigar City, New York's Captain Lawrence, Michigan's Short's, and Illinois' Two Brothers. I think I just sold 50 tickets there. Check out the entire list on the Savor website.

    *33* breweries? Has someone been drinking too much Rolling Rock? It's supposed to be 60 breweries plus 15 big-sponsor breweries, for a total of 75!

    Sad to not see any Metro DC breweries on the list. Port City Brewing Company, DC Brau, 3 Stars Brewing, etc..
