Mat Cable, Rocco DiGrazia & Rick Berg

A sell-out crowd turned out last night for the second annual Baja Brews & Bites, where six teams consisting of two local chefs and one local brewer each competed for people’s choice for the best food and beer pairing!

The event was co-sponsored by the Tucson Originals and the Baja Arizona Brewers, together showcasing the artistry of local and independent restaurants and breweries.

Just seconds after the winning team was announced, I caught up with its members to learn more about their dish and how it was intentionally paired with the corresponding brews.
