Triumphantly returning for its fifth year, the annual Chef & Brew Festival is a fun and frothy movable feast. The fest, which helped spread the word that craft beer and chef-driven cuisine were a heavenly pairing for foodies and brewhounds alike, continues to challenge chefs and brewers to experiment with bold new flavors and intriguing combinations, one reason it was crowned Denver's Best New Festival in these pages back in 2012. This year's Chef & Brew — taking place at the Exdo Event Center on Thursday, August 31, from 6 to 10 p.m. — will see twenty chefs compete against each other, with guests enjoying the results. A panel of expert judges will award prizes for Best in Show Dish, Best in Show Beer and Best Pairing, and attendees will select the winner of the evening's grand prize. Visit chefandbrew.com to learn more and buy tickets, $55 to $75. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Project Angel Heart.
