As a kickoff to Tampa Bay Craft Beer Week there is a contest at one of the LHBS in Tampa. It is called Try This!
http://www.bestfloridabeer.org/events/trythis.html
It is a paring competition where you pair a food item with a beer.
I am entering a Brown Ale I brewed with Beef Stroganoff.
Wish Me Luck!
Will post the outcome tomorrow.

Sounds like a good pairing to me. Curious to see how it comes out.

Dan, are you in one of the local clubs? I used to be in Dunedins Brewers Guild, but attended my first Pinellas Urban Brewers Guild group brew at Beer and Winemakers Pantry a few weekends ago, and I think I'm going to start hanging out with those guys, since they're closer to home.

I entered a Pumpkin Stout in the Best Beer competition as well. My first time entering a contest.


Did you realize that the food pairing thing is just one of the events, it's not the homebrew contest? The food pairing is completely voluntary, and is not the homebrew competition, which is a separate thing. The competition entries ended Feb. 8, and judging started on February 11.

Chris

Yes I am in PUB Guild. See you This Sunday?
And Yes I understand that this was a side event. Greg sent a request for pairing volunteers and I decided to enter. I did not have anything ready for the main competition. I may enter the Keggers Ball since they extended the deadline until 2-28

When and where is the PUB meeting Sunday? My work Internet blocks the PUB site because it was created on blogging software, and I keep forgetting to check at home...

Thanks for the offer for tonight, but I can't make it. Gotta put in some quality SWMBO time.

I'll be there Sunday, though.
