Two Ohio breweries -- Willoughby Brewing Co. and Fat Head's Brewery -- will showcase their beers at this year's SAVOR: An American Craft Beer & Food Experience in New York City. The annual high-end event, organized by the Brewers Association, holds a lottery to determine the breweries, with hundreds applying to participate.
"It's really nice," Willoughby head brewer Rick Seibt said. "It's a chance for us to showcase our beers to a bigger audience."
Willoughby will serve its famous Peanut Butter Cup Coffee Porter and Seibt has yet to select a second beer to take, although he said it will be an India pale ale.
Overall, 76 breweries will serve their beer paired with special dishes crafted by Chef Adam Dulye of San Francisco’s Monk’s Kettle and Abbot’s Cellar. The event is June 14-15.
