Brewery helps local food bank through mac and cheese competition

first_img“There’s nothing more local than giving back to the people in need,” said Holiavko. “So we feel like, ‘hey this is a great way to give back.’ We are happy to donate to them when we can.” Those in attendance were asked to donate $5 towards the Food Bank of the Southern Tier as the event’s charity recipient, an element to the showdown Holiavko thinks is vital. OWEGO (WBNG) – Fans of food were in for a treat on Sunday, as The Farmhouse Brewery held their Mac-N-Cheese Throwdown. Holiavko told 12 News the brewery chooses a new recipient each month. Around 14 locals put their best culinary creations on the line, trying to impress restaurant-goers with their unique mac and cheese dishes. “A lot of people want an outlet to give them something to do instead of just posting something to Facebook,” said beer tender Michael Holiavko. “Here, you can actually make something, you bring it down, you compete a little bit, you have fun and if you win you get a growler or beer and a nice trophy.” The brewery will hold a chili competition in February.last_img read more
