On the 22nd of this month, we celebrate National Hot Sauce day! So come in from the cold and enjoy some libations and spicy wings at Bogey’s Sports Pub!
A Brief History of Hot Sauce
Hot sauce is one of the most popular items in the United States. It goes on almost everything and comes in a wide variety of different flavors and varieties. In order to fully appreciate this tumultuous topping, we’ve decided to take a look back at the beginnings of this delicacy, so you might want to pour yourself a glass of water before we begin.
While spices and flavorings have existed since the inception of civilization, the advent of hot sauce coincides with a unique part of American history. In 1849, many migrated west during the gold rush to procure their fortunes. While not everyone struck it rich, Colonel Maunsell White, a banker, grew the first recorded crop of tabasco chiles. Fast forward to 1980, and hot sauce would become catapulted into mainstream popularity with the emergence of Old El Paso, who would mass market the product to a country that enjoyed a little bit of kick in their cuisine.
It didn’t take long for hot sauce to skyrocket into the state of popularity in which it exists today. By 1992, hot sauce and salsa officially replaced ketchup as the most popular condiment offered in the United States. Since then, the popularity has only increased, with major brands such as Pace and Tobasco being the most well-known. However, several different brands have emerged, many from independent entrepreneurs who have taken spice and kicked to the absolute limit. No matter what your preference might be, we invite you to come down to Bogey’s on the 22nd and partake.
