Last year, after judging the incredible hamburgers prepared for the Brew Bash competition, Michelle Glick of the event sponsor, Reinhart Food Service of Louisiana, asked me if I'd like to judge again this year.  I'm pretty sure it took less than a millisecond for me to blurt out a resounding YES.

Well, it's that time again and I'm so tickled that this year, we'll judge burgers from eight of the best chefs on the planet as they compete for fame and glory!

Brew Bash will run from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm this Friday night, October 13, at Festival Plaza in downtown Shreveport and is actually like a warm up for "Brew" which will occur the following day.

The public is invited to come sample some of the winning entries and to enjoy a cold beer.  They'll also have Brew Bash t-shirts for $15, and koozies for $1 with ALL proceeds going directly to the hurricane Harvey & Irma relief funds.

Tickets can be purchased at the gate or at shreveportbrew.com
