Yelp's Brew School continued in the Twin Cities last week, when the Elite Squad was invited to check out a St. Paul classic, Summit Brewing! Not only that, but they cooked up a storm and competed in a cut-throat cook-off using a very secret incredient… beer!
Summit opened their doors and their taps all night for this lucky group. Guests sampled Summit's flagship beers, as well as a Belgian-Style Abbey Ale and two members of the infamous Unchained series. This long-time St. Paul brewer recently added a first-class tap room, and the Elites were also lucky enough to have the run of the place for a fierce beer recipe cook-off.
Before heading off on an informative tour with Betsey from Summit, yelpers sampled and voted on their favorite dishes at the potluck. Elites certainly can cook, because it was a very close race that included soft pretzels with beer-infused dipping sauces, chocolate stout cupcakes, beer chili, beer-marinated crab rangoon pizzas, drunken beans and more!
A big thanks to our hosts at Summit for a wonderful evening—and to everyone who attended! If you were there, feel free to review the event and share your secret recipes on the special listing (remember to save your actual review of the brewery for a more typical customer experience).

Until next time,
