Memorial Day has come and gone, and so has our first ever Food Pairing Challenge. We at Beer Buzz were honored to have such great competitors in our first ever challenge, and think the results turned out incredibly well.
The theme of this Memorial Day challenge was grilling. Our competitors, Hy-Vee‘s Chef Marty Lowry and Frankaboutfood.net‘s Frank Reiter, were provided four beers around which they were asked to design a menu. The beers were provided in order of the courses, and they were asked to center their menu around a barbecue being held to celebrate the holiday.
Here’s a summary of the play by play, with the winner of each round. At the end of the post, vote on the competitor you felt had the best Overall Menu.
