Chef N Brew Festival Denver: November 15th 2012

By Michael Burns

Denver, Colorado is ground zero for the ever-growing craft beer movement.  Denver’s best chefs and the entrepreneurs behind BeerCraving, an online community of beer enthusiast, have joined forces to create Chef n Brew.  Chefs and Brewers will be challenged to celebrate and create great beer and food pairings.

The mission of Chef n Brew is two-fold.  First, we will create an evening of fun and festivities for beer connoisseurs and food-lovers alike.  We also hope to introduce our guests to the myriad of food pairing qualities of beer and demonstrate that it can equal wine as a synergistic beverage.

Twelve local breweries and twelve of the city’s most talented chefs will create a variety of tastes and pairings for all to sample.  Both guests and judges will vote on the best pairings and at the conclusion of the event, prizes will be awarded for:  Best Pairing, Most Creative Dish and Judge’s Best of Show.
