SAVOR Rogue Ales in Washington D.C.
The Brewers Association will return to Washington D.C. for the second annual SAVOR - the premier beer and food pairing event in the United States. Savor offers reception-style samping of 35+ appetizers and 136 craft beers from 68 different breweries. The sold out event will take place in the National Building Museum.
Last year Rogue was selected as one of four dozen brewers to showcase their ales. Rogue Ales was selected to return this year as one of only three breweries from the Pacific Northwest.
The SAVOR event pairs the world’s best ales, porters, stouts and lagers with gourmet foods. Rogue’s Morimoto Imperial Pilsner was made with Iron Chef Morimoto using grains harvested by Grain Millers in Eugene, Oregon. Golden in color with a dry hop floral aroma and intense hop bitterness supported by a big malty backbone which culminates into a hedonistic mouthful. It will be paired with Hibachi Style Grilled Pacific Salmon Skewers.
Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar Ale is a nutty twist to a traditional European Brown Ale - fitting since Oregon is the hazelnut capital of the United States. Eugene homebrewer Chris Studach is on the bottle. It will be paired with Mini Steakhouse Style Grilled Sirloin Sliders.
SAVOR will also offer educational salons with live presentations from brewers, brewery owners, and journalists.
Rogue Ales is a proud supporter of SAVOR. For more information visit here.
