ARNAUDVILLE - Bayou Teche Brewing has been selected to be one of the representative breweries highlighting the pleasures of fine food enjoyed with remarkable craft beer at the SAVOR: An American Craft Beer & Food Experience in New York on June 14th and 15th. Of the more than 2300 craft breweries currently in America, only 76 have been chosen for the honor this year. These 76 small and independent craft breweries hail from 31 different states and all regions of the country.
Presented by the Brewers Association and now in its sixth year, SAVOR is the premier beer and food pairing event and will illuminate the delights of craft beer for those in attendance. "We started our little brewery wanting to craft beers to compliment Cajun and Creole cuisine just over three years ago - this is our second time selected for the nation's premiere food and beer event, and we are very honored. Everyone at Bayou Teche Brewing is looking forward to being in New York for the event," said Karlos Knott, one of the founders of Bayou Teche Brewing.
After five consecutive years being held at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., SAVOR makes its much-anticipated debut in New York City. Each Brewery will pour two of its beers, accompanied by a reception-style sampling of sweet and savory appetizers designed by Brewers Association culinary consultant Adam Dulye, Chef/Owner of The Monk's Kettle and James Beard Award-semifinalist Abbot's Cellar in San Francisco, and a select group of chefs specializing in beer and food pairings.
