For the third year in a row, CPTV and WNPR willhost the Craft Beer & Chili Challenge, an enormous beer and chili tasting party and contest, with all proceeds benefiting CPTV and WNPR’s local programming initiatives.   

 

The event takes place on Sunday, August 12 from 12 noon to 4 p.m. at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Connecticut. For one flat admission price, attendees can sample dozens of different chilis prepared by area restaurants and hundreds of craft beers from around the state and around the world. In addition, there will be vendors and crafters from around the Northeast displaying and selling their work, as well as a DJ providing a rocking soundtrack of music for the event.

 

Ticketholders will have head-spinning choices of craft beers to sample, including nut brown ales, blonde lagers, light pilsners, dark stouts and more from every corner of the world. Then, everyone votes for their favorite and Connecticut’s favorite beer and chili are crowned. Last year’s Craft Beer & Chili Challenge awarded Blue Point top honors, with Old Burnside and Overshores Brewing Co. coming in second and third.

 

The chili available to taste will be just as interesting and varied. Whether you like your chili spicy, sweet or mild with beef, pork, beans or veggies, there is a delicious cup of chili to please everyone’s palate. Last year, the Yardhouse Tavern claimed the best chili in Connecticut award, with Jordan Caterers and Wood ‘n’ Tap of Southington following in second and third.

 

Tickets are available for purchase online at beerandchili.org. General admission is $62.50 and includes beer and chili, as well as one voting ballot.
