Brewery Ommegang brings its national food and beer pairing competition, HopChef, to Dallas on November 3 at 6:30PM at 3015 at Trinity Grove. HopChef Dallas is the signature kick-off event for 2014 North Texas Beer Week and is sure to be the hottest (and tastiest) ticket in town. The event will bring together Dallas’s top beer-forward chefs under one roof to pair dishes with a variety of Ommegang’s ales and to compete for the title of Dallas HopChef 2014. Tickets, which are now on-sale at TicketLeap, are the only way to take part in the HopChef.

Six beer-forward restaurants have been selected to participate including Meddlesome Moth, Blind Butcher, Common Table, FM Smokehouse, Whiskey Cake, and Libertine.

“We’re thrilled to finally bring HopChef to Dallas and to kick off Dallas Beer Week with a night of beer, food, and fierce but friendly competition,’’ said Bill Wetmore, Marketing Director for Brewery Ommegang. “The food and craft beer scenes in Dallas are hotter than ever and we can’t wait to see the culinary showdown unfold in the Big D.”

Each chef will create one dish showcasing their imaginative beer and food pairing skills. The dishes, each paired with a specific Ommegang beer, will be served to a panel of judges and attendees to taste and score.

The winner of HopChef Dallas receives a prize package from culinary leaders such as Cuisinart and Shun, a 3-liter trophy from Brewery Ommegang, and some serious bragging rights.

Tickets are available for $60 each and may be purchased at TicketLeap. Admission includes samples of each chef’s signature dish and accompanying Ommegang beers as well as a commemorative Brewery Ommegang glass. 3015 at Trinity Groves is located at 3015 Gulden Lane, Dallas, TX 75212.

HopChef competitions have been delicious and wildly popular in Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Miami, and Washington DC. Relive, follow, and add to the action on Twitter and Instagram with #HopChef.
