Hanover Inn Wins 2009 Lake Sunapee Chowder Challenge

Who won this year’s Lake Sunapee Chowder Challenge? The Hanover Inn, Hanover, was the bigger winner taking both the People’s Choice Award and Judge’s Award for chowder. Attendees gave the second place award to Bubba’s Bar and Grille, Newbury, and third place recognition to Ike’s Chowdah, Newbury. Salt Hill Pub, Newport, received the Judge’s Award for the best soup and stew. Held this year on the last Sunday in September, the event (despite inclement weather) attracted over 700 people to Sunapee Harbor. Rob Bryant, the executive director of the Lake Sunapee Region Chamber of Commerce, said 620 ballots were cast. The Chamber and the Sunapee Parent Teacher Organization co-sponsored the challenge, which has become an annual event.
