Last year George Sabatino won the Ommegang Hop Chef competition in Philadelphia and in Cooperstown. In coming weeks fans of food, beer and trash talking can follow the hashtag #HopChef to learn more from the competing chefs. The chefs however will have their work cut out for them to come close to matching the trash talking of last year’s crew.
