Beer and Food Pairings

Breweries will be allowed to showcase one or two (one complimenting and/or one contrasting) beer at the event.

Breweries will choose a food dish from our pairing menu once they have been selected for the event. Food pairing samples will be served at a food station by the brewery's table.

Participating Breweries

The event will consist of 48 breweries from 8 regions of the country pairing 1 to 2 of their beers with a pre-selected menu of food. There will be 5 breweries randomly chosen from each of 8 regions. There will also be an additional 8 spots available for participating brewery sponsors.
