SHERMAN, Texas -- Those who love cheesy dip and those who make it came together for a good cause on Saturday at the first Queso Cook Off at 903 Brewers.

The brewery's owner, Jeremy Roberts, said he was inspired by his family to stage the event to benefit The Sherman Museum.

"Back in the fall, I saw that the museum's funds were getting cut in half," he said. "Having two children that love going to the museum, I just felt like I've got to find a way to do a fundraiser and really help them and raise the money."

Although the museum's funds were cut, Interim Director Dylan White is passionate about keeping the doors open.

"The museum is a very great resource for for the city for personal history, history of the area," he said. "When you live in the area, it's great to know."

There was a $25 fee to participate in the cook off and a $10 fee to sample the cheesy goodness.

"It's been really fun to watch everybody come in and try the different quesos," Roberts said. "None of them taste the same."

Competitor Kyle Norwood explained his concoction this way: "It's more of a beer cheese than a queso," he said. " We also did pretzels instead of chips, so it sucks up the taste and gives a little different flavor."

And if you missed the debut of the Queso Cook Off,  don't fret.

"We're definitely going to see this happen again next year, and hopefully raise more money for The Sherman Museum," Roberts said.
