The Indianapolis City Market is excited to announce the return of 12 Chefs of Christmas, a food and beer pairing event held in past years to serve as the organization’s largest fundraiser of the year, to be held on Saturday, Dec. 8, from 2-5 p.m.

12 Chefs will feature 12 local chefs and 12 Indiana craft breweries working together to provide food dishes created to be enjoyed with specific brews. Attendees will be able to enjoy sample-sized portions of the food and drink. Guests will be encouraged to enjoy full pints of the featured beers, which will be available for purchase in Tomlinson Tap Room during the event.

This will be a casual event taking place in the afternoon on the City Market’s upper mezzanine level, with the first floor of the Market remaining open for regular Saturday business hours. Local DJ Rusty Redenbacher will provide live entertainment at the event.

Join us in Tomlinson Tap Room on Monday, Nov. 5, for the 12 Chefs Pairing Party where we'll get our chefs and breweries teamed up to start work on their food-beer pairings!
