Bob Skilnik At Ohio Brew Week BBQ Competition
Posted by Bob Skilnik on July 21, 2008
I’ll have more to say about my 3 days in Athens, Ohio and the 3rd annual celebration of beer and food at the Ohio Brew Week fest…but for now, this article from The Athens Messenger (Thanks Meredith. I don’t why they haven’t made you Editor-in-Chief yet!));
Prizes were determined by a combination of public votes and a panel of four judges, including Bob Skilnik, author of “Beer & Food – An American History.”
Chicagoan Skilnik, a connoisseur on beer and food pairings (as well as foods that use beer as an ingredient), was selling and autographing his book on site. Skilnik says he tries to stay neutral and avoid judging contests, but the chance to visit to Brew Week was one that he could not pass up.
“It really is unique and that’s what intrigued me,” he said. “It’s a week-long pub crawl.”
Me? A connoisseur? C’mon!
