I am honored to be a judge for the competition among vendors for best sweet tooth item, best savory dish, best cocktail and best overall item. Also judging are Mike Arnold who posts on Instagram and Twitter as @GusGusFunBus and Pat McGonigle, personable newsguy for Newschannel 5 (KSDK).
This is a fun event and it’s not just for people in the Maplewood/Mid-County area. Everybody is welcome.
John Holl, author of The American Craft Beer Cookbook, will appear at Schlafly Bottleworks in Maplewood on Thursday, September 12 at 6:00 p.m.
John will be signing copies of his book which contains 155 recipes using craft beer. List price for the book is 19.95. If you buy a signed copy Thursday night at Schlafly, you’ll get a free pint!
Missouri brewers featured in the book include O’Fallon Brewery (Cheddar Ale Soup), Schlafly Beer (Imperial Meat Pie), Urban Chestnut Brewing Company (Bavarian Sausage Salad) and Boulevard Brewing Company (Roasted Pheasant with Pumpernickel Bread Pudding and Cranberry Sauce).
According to his bio, John (pictured below) has visited more than 900 breweries around the world, conducting research for his beer-and-travel books as well as articles for the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Beer Connoisseur, Beverage World, and many other publications.
