Victory Brewing is one of our favorite brewing companies, and it is made even better by the fact that it's just 15/20 mins from where we live!
Today was Victory's 13th annual Chili Cookoff - the staff, along with some friends & family, cooked-up 18 different kinds of chili!!!! The tasting was free, which made for a great afternoon adventure. Some were more spicy than others, the flavors were all over the place! One of Kevin's favorites had a great Taco flavor, and my favorite was Cajun inspired. After tasting all 18, we placed our votes.
The biggest issue may have been the number of people that were there - not all bad, but at some points, the back dining room was PACKED, and ended up being about 10 degrees warmer than I was really comfortable with - LOOK:
Some of the tables were decorated, some people dressed up in costume - I was very impressed!
All in all, I was quite impressed with how well run things were, and the amount of coordination involved in having that many people in one place! We're absolutely planning on going back again next year, and will be better prepared with our own scoring sheet.
