Brew Rendezvous : An Inaugural Event for the CHIP

Your average burgers and beer pairings were nowhere to be found at The Brew Rendezvous. This was no ordinary beer fest. Organizers paired local breweries with culinary explorers like Chef Miguel Valdez from Red Door Restaurant, Hanis Cavin from Carnitas Snack Shack and Ricardo Heredia from Alchemy. Beers were paired together with the talents and products of local chefs and farmers to produce a complimentary pairing of flavors.

With the help of Chef Alex Carballo (formerly of Stone Brewery) and friends, the Community Health Improvement Partners were able to bring some awareness to their initiative trying to tackle childhood obesity through creating key partnerships with local farmers & businesses for a healthy, sustainable regional food system.
