Sean Brasel Crowned Miami's HopChef at Brewery Ommegang's Throwdown

There really is no better pairing than beer and food, so when Brewery Ommegang (that very Belgian of American craft breweries) expanded its list of cities for its annual HopChef competition to include Miami, chefs from the area rose to the challenge of enveloping their food with beer.

Monday, the chefs proved their culinary chops and brought the hundreds of foodies and beer lovers that attended the HopChef event at the gorgeous Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables to gastronomic paradise. Though eight chefs entered, only one could step away with the title of HopChef for Miami.
