Event Preview | 2016 Chef & Brew

Event Preview | 2016 Chef & Brew
Kelsey Verdier

Colorado brewmasters and chefs team up this Thursday to push the boundaries of beer and food pairings at the 5th annual Chef & Brew festival and competition. More than 20 pairs of culinary collaborators will compete to knock the socks off attendees and judges. Each chef will create two small bites inspired by their partnered brewery, while each brewery pours two of their best suds to complement the food. After enjoying unlimited samples of both bites and sips, guests will cast their votes for the People’s Choice Award. Expert judges, including Justin de la Rosa of The Denver Post, Elizabeth Woessner of Dining Out Magazine, Lori Midson of Denver Life Magazine, Mark Antonation of Westword, Steve Kurowski of the Colorado Brewer’s Guild, and Chef Brandon Foster of Project Angel Heart, will also lend their palates to help determine the overall winning duo.

What: 5th Annual Chef & Brew

When: Thursday, November 17, 2016; 6 – 10 p.m.

Where: EXDO Event Center 1339 35th St | Denver, CO 80205
