Hooo-boooy, dat's hot! Victory's Chili Challenge was a blast this past Sunday. Thanks to Karen Noonan for the invitation to be on the panel of "expert" judges. Tasting happened in an undisclosed location, with points awarded for appearance, aroma, consistency, originality, and flavor. The entries were coded by letter on our end, while the people in the brew pub voted by number, so everything was pretty darn fair.
We at the Ferment Nation have plenty of pictures to share by way of a Picasa web album, which is coming up in the next day or so, but let's catch up with the winners:
1st place: Ian Jenkins & Megan Maska with their Beast Breath Chili
2nd place: Chuck Golder with It's Just Chili
3rd place: Meg Davis, Amanda Hoffman, and Dillon Allen with Philly Chili
The people voted as well and named John's Doe Chili the best of the best. That team included Andrew McGarry, Alex Chryst and Ali Leaf.
Thanks again to everyone at Victory for making the Chili Challenge an amazing event! Be on the lookout for a new post ASAP which will include our own photos and shoutouts to some other fun judges that we met along the way. Cheers!
