The Beer Throwdown

In October, our busy Throwdowners gathered once more to put their cooking skills to the test. The theme this time: beer. Beer is thought to have originated in Neolithic times, making it the oldest of the malted beverages. From its inception, beer has been popular, creating a unique beer culture complete with festivals (Oktoberfest, Bavarian Harvest Festival) and pub-crawls around the world.

While some of the Throwdowners were inspired by Oktoberfest-themed foods, most took cues from their favorite cuisines, whether Italian, BBQ or chic French fare. With beer as the star ingredient, a Throwdown never tasted so good!

Take a look at the delicious creations the Throwdowners came up with this time. Which one piques your fancy?
