Registration Closing Soon for First Ever Fort Worth One Pot Showdown
Saint Arnold Brewing Company partners with Fort Worth Weekly to host unique beer-focused cooking competition in North Texas
FORT WORTH, Texas, March 16, 2016 – Saint Arnold Brewing Company (www.saintarnold.com), the oldest craft brewery in Texas, is inviting North Texas amateur chefs and foodies to show off their creativity and culinary skills. Saint Arnold is teaming with Fort Worth Weekly to host the first ever Fort Worth One Pot Showdown on Saturday, March 26, 2016. The rules require dishes to feature at least one Saint Arnold beer and be prepared in a single pot onsite, which is no easy feat.
“This is a great opportunity to celebrate culinary creativity and showcase the wonderful flavors beer can contribute when used an ingredient and as a beverage,” said Saint Arnold Founder/Brewer Brock Wagner. “It’s exciting to see what the teams come up with. Winning recipes from our main event in Houston have included Guajillo Pork Soup made with Saint Arnold Winter Stout and pancakes made with Saint Arnold Ale Wagger, which were both surprising and terrific.”
Modeled after the Saint Arnold One Pot Showdown held annually in Houston – the brewery’s biggest event of the year – the Fort Worth One Pot Showdown is expected to attract more than two dozen teams and approximately 300 attendees. This is the first time the One Pot Showdown will expand beyond Houston.
