Pairsine Chefs Fine Food and Beer Pairing Competition
There are plenty of beer geeks in Colorado, but the state is home to foodies, too. The groups don't have to be at odds, though, thanks to the Pairsine Chefs Fine Food and Beer Pairing Competition, which celebrates the best in craft beer and cuisine. At the annual event, Colorado's chefs prepare culinary offerings to pair with a collection of award winners from the Denver International Beer Competition. Guests mingle while sampling the pairings, then cast their votes. The night concludes with a counting of the votes and chef awards.
