It takes a lot of…something…to subject your cooking skills to the palates and opinions of co-workers. These are people you see on a regular basis, people with whom you share a workspace, toner cartridges, 1% milk. Fortunately, here at Snooth we’ve got a few souls brave and/or reckless enough to try their hand at our seasonal office cook offs.  

It being nearly St. Patrick’s Day, we went the way of Irish beer. Of our five competitors, only one had significant experience cooking with beer—no coincidence he’s also the guy who owns his own smoker and has an iPhone chock full of trophy fish pics. For the rest of us, the challenge was an interesting opportunity to experiment with, and aggressively taste test, a new ingredient.
