Brewery Ommegang and Saveur Magazine are bringing their beer and food pairing showdown Hop Chef to Beantown — at The Cyclorama at the Boston Center for the Arts on June 26 at 7pm.
The drool-worthy line-up of Boston-area chefs, including Andy Husbands of Tremont 647, Michael Lombardi Jr. of The Salty Pig, Josh Smith of Franklin Cafe, Josh Harrison of Publick House and Brian Young of Citizen Public House will each create one dish showcasing their imaginative beer and food pairing skills. The dishes, all paired with Ommegang ales, will be served sustainably on beautiful VerTerra dinnerware to a panel of judges, and to all attendees, to taste and score. As it all goes down, great beer will partner with great food to help out a great cause: a portion of proceeds from Hop Chef Boston will benefit the Boston Center for the Arts.
