The 6th Annual South 4th Chili Cookoff

Jan 25, 2014 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm

| Free

We invite all of you pepper mongers, southerners, westerners, iron stomach wannabes to toss your hat into the ring and bring your best chili to our bar for judgement: It’s the 6th Annual South 4th Chili Cookoff!

There are a limited number of entry spots available so please read and respond quickly, especially those veterans of chili wars past as our rules are different than what you may be used to. And congrats again to last year’s winner, Sam Tresler whose plaque will soon be on display at the bar and will be joining us this year as one of our illustrious judges!

We are proud to announce that Samuel Adams is a sponsor of the event which is why we will be offering $5 pints of Sam Adams Boston Lager, Sam Adams Cold Snap & Angry Orchard Crisp Apple from Noon until 5pm. In addition, they are providing some of the amazing prizes that we are giving away, and Sam Adams Brewery Rep John Marra will also be joining us as a judge this year! Completing our wonderful panel of judges this year are South 4th’s own Lana Winter & returning judge Ed Shimmin! All chefs participating must have their chili present at the bar by 12pm so it can be brought to temperature. Judging will begin promptly at 2:00pm and samples will be made available to all spectators as soon as the judges have had a taste :)

The prizes are:
1st – Sam Adams cooler & football jersey, $50 South 4th bar tab, name on our winners plaque, and a choice to defend your title or judge in 2014!
2nd – Sam Adams sweatshirt & $25 South 4th bar tab
3rd – 1 free pitcher of Sam Adams beer and a $10 South 4th bar tab

Lastly, the winner will have his or her recipe prepared and subsidized by us to be given away for free at our annual Superbowl Mustache party (Start your growin’!) February 2nd. So break out your favorite cast iron pot, wooden spoon and grandma’s death bed super secret chili spice and see if you have what it takes to rule the chili world!

See you all on the 25th to taste all the yummy entries!
