Melvin Does Savor


Put some Melvin in your mouth, Savor it!

Good food. Good craft beer. Is there any­thing bet­ter? Obvi­ous­ly the answer is no, so obvi­ous­ly Melvin had to par­tic­i­pate in Savor. Now nine years old, Savor is America’s pre­mier craft beer and food pair­ing event. Each year a hand­ful of the world’s best chefs and craft brew­ers con­verge in Wash­ing­ton, DC to make taste buds tin­gle. This year will be Melvin’s first at Savor and we’re going big. From tast­ing events with the best to brunch with Oba­ma (maybe), join us. It’s going to be deli­cious!

Nom, Nom, Nom…

Wednesday June 1 | Out-of-Market Night | The Meridian Pint

Melvin, Asheville’s Wicked Weed and Louisiana’s Parish Brew­ing will be kick­ing off Savor with an Out-of-Mar­ket night a Merid­i­an Pint. You can’t get any of this beer in DC on a reg­u­lar basis, we shipped it via Fedex, so come drink it! We’ll have 2x4, Melvin IPA, Hubert and the (Hop) Shock­er, beer from the future, on tap. Event starts at 5PM.


Friday June 3 | Savor Week Highlights plus Melvin IPAs | The Brookland Pint 

The Brook­land Pint is pour­ing Savor week high­light beers along with a bunch of Melvin beers! We’ll have Drunk­en Mas­ter, The (hop) Shock­er, 2x4, Melvin IPA and Hubert on tap. Event starts at 11 am and goes late into the night until 2am.

June 3 & 4 | Savor Grand Tasting | National Building Museum


For two nights 76 craft brew­eries will serve-up beers paired with gourmet culi­nary cre­ations. Melvin will be serv­ing 2x4 and Chchch-Cher­ry Bomb. 2x4 will be paired with a goat gou­da gougère. Savor describes this pair­ing as, “Big, hop­py fla­vors are calmed on the palate by the tex­ture of the gougère, while the tang of the goat gou­da helps cut the rich­ness.” Chchch-Cher­ry Bomb will be paired with a cher­ry linz­er torte. Savor said the pair­ing will be, “Tart cher­ry notes from the beer are bal­anced by the clas­sic linz­er crust, cre­at­ing a deep­er palate reac­tion to this bite.” This makes us hun­gry. The Savor Food pair­ing goes from 7:30PM to 11PM both evenings. Tick­ets are still avail­able here.



Saturday June 4 | Birch & Barley’s 5th Annual Brewers’ Brunch | Churchkey

This event is going to be pimp! Melvin’s Jere­my Tofte will join brew­ers from Sier­ra Neva­da, Alla­gash, The Lost Abbey, Great Raft and the Spencer Brew­ery and (hope­ful­ly) Pres­i­dent Oba­ma for a five course brunch paired with six beers. We invit­ed Oba­ma, he hasn’t con­firmed or denied atten­dance yet… NSA, we know you’re read­ing this, so tell Oba­ma to, “Join us at brunch!” Hubert will be the aper­i­tif or eas­i­er said, the liq­uid app. Event starts at 11am, tick­ets avail­able here.

Saturday June 4 | Savor Showcase | Churchkey

The par­ty con­tin­ues after brunch. Nine brew­eries, 36 taps- Melvin will be on four. There’s going to be lots of good beer here. Show up, if you like good beer. No admis­sion fee, starts at noon.


Saturday June 4 | Savor After Party | Bar Deco

Savor is over, but that doesn’t mean Melvin is done. Join us, Port City Brew­ing Com­pa­ny and our friends DC Brau at Bar Deco for some 2x4 and (Hop) Shock­er IPA. Event starts at 10PM.
