Cheese is addictive. That’s not just an opinion. There have even been studies done that show that cheese may even be as addictive as heroin. Well, despite that conclusion, I’m not ashamed to say that I’m hooked. I’m a cheese addict, and I know many others who are as well.
Hellbent Brewing Company has picked up on this. Last year during Seattle Beer Week #9, they hosted an event called Roquefort One: A Cheese Wars Story, where they pitted two local food trucks against each other in an ultimate cheesy, beer-fueled competition to raise money for Seattle Children’s Hospital.
Roquefort One was such a success, that Hellbent is bringing the event back next month for Seattle Beer Week 10. This year it’s The Peach & the Pig vs. Wicked Good Grinders in Cheese Wars: The Last Cheddai. The Rebel Legion and the 501st Legion will also be back this year in full costume to make this an event to remember. Don’t worry though, no Bothans died to bring you this information.
Here is some more information about this event from Hellbent Brewing Company:
SEATTLE– To celebrate Seattle Beer Week and raise money for Seattle Children’s hospital, Peach & the Pig and Wicked Good Grinders go head to head in a Star Wars themed intergalactic battle for the best cheddar sandwich.
