In addition to the awards ceremony, the 1,400 attendees were treated to a delicious meal, courtesy of The Homebrew Chef Sean Paxton and Rogue Ales. The dinner featured the flavors of Southern California and Mexico, with a Chipotle Ale brined chicken covered in a Oaxacan Chocolate Stout mole made with TCHO Chocolate, served on a bed of savory rice pilaf infused with Dead Guy Ale. That's three beers in the main course alone! Paxton paired the entree with Rogue's Mocha Porter.
