Susie Sowell of Weichert, Realtors® – Stanford & Company Wins Mac & Cheese Cooking Contest

Susie Sowell holds a six-pack of beer from the case included in the first place prize package she received for winning the Let’s Get Baked: Mac & Beer Cheese cooking competition.

SAVANNAH, Ga. / May 1, 2019 – Susie Sowell was all baked after scoring big last month at a local brewery. But it’s not what you think.
Sowell, a licensed agent at Weichert, Realtors® – Stanford & Company in Savannah, won first place at the Let’s Get Baked: Mac & Beer Cheese competition sponsored by the Southbound Brewing Company on April 20.
“I still can’t believe I won,” said Sowell, of her award-winning recipe named, Return of the Mac. “There were so many mouth-watering entries. I just added a little bit of a new seasonal beer that I recently discovered to my favorite mac & cheese recipe and hoped for the best.”
And Sowell’s best paid off big time.
The first place finish comes with a pair of $25 gift cards to the Southbound Brewing Company and Bowtie BBQ in Savannah, as well as a chance for mac & cheese lovers in the area to enjoy Sowell’s award-winning dish.
Bowtie BBQ is featuring Sowell’s mac & cheese on its menu for a month this fall. The eatery’s Bowtie food truck will also be at the Southbound Brewery later this year dishing out Sowell’s mac & beer cheese on the day the seasonal beer used in her recipe goes on sale to the public.
Amazed at how much attention her mac & beer cheese is getting, Sowell continues to take it all in – possibly with a beer from the free case that was also included in the first place prize package.
“This all seems surreal to me, like it’s not really happening,” added Sowell. “But I guess there are people out there that love mac & cheese as much as I do.”
