Seeing the SAVOR

Josh Mishell of Flying Dog Brewery has put a nice 4 1/2 minute video on SAVOR up at his personal site, Bank Gothic Overload.

SAVOR may have been the first ever national exhibition of beer-with-food, held mid-May in Washington D.C. The sponsoring group was the Brewers Association, the national advocacy group for small breweries. I have a small write-up here.

If you look closely during the first scene of the crowds entering the Mellon Auditorium, you'll catch a glimpse of Fred Lewis. He's wearing the biege suit.

Fred is a long-time demiurge of the Washington DC beer scene. Well before good beer was a a given in our area (think 25 years ago!), Fred was hosting many beer events at the Old Europe in Georgetown, and still occasionally does so.

There's also an amusing shot during the the interview with Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head. Look over his shoulder and you'll see the caterers chowing down big-time!

  1. Yeah, that shot of the caterer behind Sam on the right of the screen eating is hilarious. I didn't notice until I was editing the footage...

    Thanks for the repost.
