Big news for Choc this week as they were announced as one of 76 breweries from around the country that will take part in SAVOR 2013. SAVOR, a craft beer and food tasting event, is quickly becoming one of the hottest and most prestigious beer events in the nation.
Breweries are selected through a lottery process, with more than 200 applying this year. Sixty were selected and will be joined by 16 supporting/sponsor breweries.
Choc President Zach Prichard offered this statement after learning of Choc’s inclusion:
We are very excited to be one of the 60 breweries selected to pour at this year’s SAVOR! This year over 200 breweries entered the SAVOR lottery. Chef Adam Dulye of the Monk’s Kettle in San Francisco will create food pairings for all the beers at the event. We will be pouring Signature Dubbel and Gose. This event is really a celebration of the possibilities of beer and beer culture. It is designed to showcase beer in a unique way. Even today, beer is often times defined in a very narrow spectrum. SAVOR challenges that concept by providing a wide range of unique and interesting beers paired with amazing foods. We are very excited to be able to add to that with our Dubbel and Gose. On top to that it will be really cool to pour Choc beers in New York City!
The event is June 14-15 in New York. The list of supporting/sponsor breweries can be found right here. And the list of all brewers involved is right here. General information about SAVOR can be found by clicking here.
Choc will not be the first Oklahoma brewer to take part. SAVOR 2012 in Washington, D.C., featured Oklahoma City’s COOP Ale Works.

-Mustang is now up and running and brewing several batches at the OKCity Brewing facility.
-Here are the brains behind Roughtail’s new brewing set-up. It’s almost as advanced as my homebrew set-up.
-Where do we stand in the sports world now that I don’t find this story particularly shocking?
-For those of you in the northwest Oklahoma County/Edmond area, I can report the new Upper Crust at Western/178th has a pretty decent selection of craft beer. As far as the pizza goes, try the Flying Pig.
