The Crack Fries trophy comes to Chicago!

Crack Fries Championship

The HopCat Crack Fries Eating Contest World Championship has a new home: Chicago!

Congratulations to Pat, who took first place on July 28th at the Michigan Brewers Guild's Summer Beer Festival in Ypsilanti. We gathered the winners from each location's Crack Fries Eating Contest for a battle royale. At stake: $2,000 and free Crack Fries for a year to the person who can eat the most in 6 minutes. Pat scarfed down 4.5 pounds, edging out the defending champion from Ann Arbor. You can watch a video replay of his glorious achievement via Facebook. The Crack Fries Championship trophy will remain here in Chicago at least until next year, Stanley Cup-style!
