HopChef Competitions


HopChef is Brewery Ommegang’s nationally acclaimed chef competition, nurturing the community of beer and food lovers that sits beer at the head of the table. A collection of hand-selected chefs from the hottest local restaurants are challenged to showcase their imaginative pairing skills using Brewery Ommegang’s Belgian-style ales to create a signature pairing dish.   Ales are sipped, plates are cleaned and judges deliberate as HopChef creates a fun and approachable event for a community of beer lovers and foodies alike.

HopChef Competition

Brewery Ommegang kicks off an expanded tour in 2014, offering local chefs, restaurants, retailers, and consumers in eight cities throughout the country a unique opportunity to join together in celebration of the art of pairing (and enjoying) fine food and crafted beer.
