4th Annual Beer Chili Cook-Off

1:00 PM

We're on a hunt for the best chili and we want to see what you can do! If you're not the best cook, no worries. Come taste the chili, vote for your favorite, and have a beer on us! Tickets for tasting are only $10 and include a pint of beer, samples, voting tools, and a bowl of your favorite. This year we are switching it up and bringing on DMACC's  Execitive Chef Instructor Logan Lumley to choose a culinary vote winner. Don't worry, we are still having YOU choose a popular vote winner too!
