Savor Week Brings A Little Something For The Ladies
Calling all fellow female beer lovers! It's that time of year again. Thanks to Savor, the craft beer and food event that descends upon the District each June, the local and national female beer communities are coming together for a night of foamy feminine revelry (and not in the raunchy Girls Gone Wild fashion, thank you very much).
This coming Sunday, June 5, yours truly is hosting All 'Ale the Ladies 2011. (Last year was a blast!) The event will give suds-loving gals an opportunity to meet each other, hear special guests talk about their paths into the beer profession, and learn about pairing beer with food. The party starts at 6 p.m. at the Black Squirrel in its new downstairs tap room. Visit the Washington City Paper's RSVP page for more details and a chance to sign up. [Note: While the evening's theme is all about the ladies, gentlemen are also welcome to attend. We have a couple on the RSVP list already.]
A full list of speakers is after the jump.
This night may be especially for the ladies, but if you're a female fan of craft beer, don't forget to check out all the other events going on all week long. (It'd be nice for this Lagerhead not to be one of the only ladies out there.)
