2016 Annual Holiday Beer and Food Match

Thanks to Lynn and Kevin for hosting the GHHA Annual Holiday Beer and Food Match last night.  We had 23 people attend with 16 beer/food matches plus the digestif.

Congratulations to Wayne for winning Best Homebrew with his Rauchbier.  Also congratulations to Geoff and Beckie for winning Best food with their Chicken Wonton Bites and Best Beer/Food Match with their Taco Casserole and Pale Ale.

The gift exchange (aka wrestling match) went very well.  Only a few gifts were wrestled from reluctant hands.
