The Cook off Returns to Galveston January 21st!
If you’ve never made your way down to the island for Yaga’s Chiliquest, this is the year to do it. The third annual event is set to take place in Galveston’s Historic Strand District on Saturday, January 21 and will feature more than 80 chili cook-off teams plus, the addition of a craft beer garden! For the next two weeks, the pint jockeys will highlight a few of the brews you can expect to find at the 2012 event.
First up, for fans of spicy chili, we’re recommending Rogue Yellow Snow IPA. The Indian Pale Ale is golden in color with a hoppy, fruity aroma. The brew’s big hop flavor up front is complemented by medium body and more hoppyness mid-pallet. It finishes strong with a lingering bitterness one can expect from a good IPA. The brew pairs perfectly with hot foods, so it’ll be great when sampling the offerings from contenders for top “Jalapeno Chili” honors.
