Paired (formerly Farm to Table Pavilion)

Paired beer and food pairingsStarting in 2015, Farm to Table has a new name—Paired. Read all about the change here! (Don’t worry, Farm to Table fans, the tasty format stays the same.)

Join a who’s who of celebrated chefs and small and independent brewers from around the country in this intimate setting located just off the main hall. In 2015, Paired will feature 21 chefs matched with 21 craft brewers, offering 42 total unique pairings. Our featured chefs from across the country are defining new American cuisine in their own communities, including Boston, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Milwaukee, Washington, D.C., Denver and Boulder. Paired chefs have garnered accolades from Food and Wine, Bon Appetit, James Beard Foundation and more—with chefs recognized not only for what they have brought to cuisine but for what they have contributed to their communities as well. Three of our 2015 Paired chefs have established national non-profit organizations that give back and educate about community, land and the sea.

Paired features special craft beer releases—the 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 (left side doors). Participation is limited to approximately 1,000 people on Thursday and Friday only, plus guest chefs, media and a few surprise visitors each evening. Separate ticket required for entrance.
