The Pairsine Chefs Food & Wine Competition has evolved into Denver's most coveted annual culinary/wine event selling out each year. Some of Colorado's most outstanding culinary talents have competed in Pairsine, including Top Chef Season 5 winner Hosea Rosenberg, who was our three time champion, BEFORE he gained television fame!

The 5th Annual Pairsine Chefs Food & Beer Pairing Competition celebrates Colorado's reputation for being the epicenter of the beer industry and it's culture. It also helps passionate foodies experience some of the best gourmet food pairings with award-winning beers. The venue is the Omni Interlocken Resort's beautiful outdoor pavilion.

HOW IT WORKS:

Up to 10 beer savvy chefs compete to make up to 20 custom paired epicurean delights with 20 award-winning Beers!

While the event is sometimes referred to as "Iron Chef ™" meets beer, participating chefs have no secret ingredient. Chef's are provided with sample bottles of beer to taste and develop their custom paired dishes.

On event day, the participating chefs will create custom paired dishes, served in appetizer portions and staff will pour beer samples alongside the chef's food table.

A panel of notable food and wine critics/experts will taste each culinary creation with its assigned beer. They select the "Best Chef" and "Most Creative" Chef winners.

All consumer attendees also get to cast their votes for the "People's Choice" award. A valuable prize is awarded to the "People's Choice Chef".
