Nearly 500 beer geeks and foodniks packed the EXDO Event Center last night for Chef & Brew, an annual bash that celebrates Colorado's craft beer scene. Seventeen local chefs, paired with the same number of brewers, battled against one another for prizes and bragging rights, the awards of which were chosen by a team of judges as well as the public. Judges gave the best beer-and-food pairing prize to Strange Brewing and CY Steak, while the judge's award for best beer went to Renegade Brewing, which poured an Imperial Stout. Best overall dish went to Darren Pusateri, exec chef of Gallo di Nero. Le Grand Bistro & Oyster Bar, whose kitchen is commanded by John Broening, won the people's choice nod, as did TRVE Brewing. Here's an abbreviated photo recap of the festivities; For more pictures, check out our slideshow.
