Farm to Table Pavilion

Farm to Table

Join a who’s who of celebrated chefs and small & independent brewers from around the country in this intimate setting located just off the main hall.

Created to provide an opportunity to taste how well craft beer pairs with food, attendees will sample craft beers paired with foods designed and prepared by chefs from around the country. Special releases—beers served here are available only in the pavilion and not in the festival hall!

Enjoy small plates and craft beer pairings and engage in meaningful discussions with chefs and brewers, who share similar philosophies on choosing specific ingredients to enhance their products.

Located in the Upper Lobby D area, walk through the festival to the back wall (right side doors). Participation is limited to 450 ticket holders on Thursday and Friday only,  plus guest chefs, media and a few surprise visitors each evening. Separate ticket required for entrance.
