I won't waste a lot of time trying to wrangle words, because it seems that they have been difficult to come by for me of late.
Instead here's a gallery of pictures that I took yesterday at Victory's Chili Challenge in Downingtown, Pa.
Over 800 people showed up at Victory for this tasty not-really-a-beer-event event. Mighty impressive for a beautiful Sunday afternoon.
All entrants were employees of the brewery and cooked in the kitchen under the guidance of Executive Chef Eric MacPherson. Beer, of course, was an ingredient.
Oh, and one takeaway that I can share with you? Stop in very soon to try the "collaboration" Eclat Chocolate Lager —on nitro. At roughly 5.5% ABV and with a moderate dose of wonderful West Chester-based chocolate, you might find yourself, as did I, asking for a second glass.
