It’s time for our 5th celebration of the DIY spirit! Brought to you by the BaltiBrew homebrew club, the Charitably Charmin’ ChiliBrew is an informal, semiannual charity homebrew competition and chili cookoff, now benefiting the Baltimore Free Farm, the Bearings Bike Project, and the Baltimore Green Currency Association. Previous installments have each drawn about 30 entries and 200+ enthusiastic judges, and this spring we will be returning to the Free Farm’s “Localize It!” outdoor festival.The latter:
Anyone can compete in the ChiliBrew, and anyone can judge! Just looking for a good time with good food/brews/all of the above? Come on out! Got a killer family chili recipe or brew your own beer? Bring it on! Involved with some other hobby or organization that Does It Together, here in Baltimore? Share the love! We want to bring people interested in all aspects of local lifestyles together to cross-pollinate and build community.
We’re suggesting a $10–$20 sliding-scale donation at the door from those who partake of the ChiliBrew. That’ll get you a ballot to vote on any or all of the competitions (chili con carne, veggie chili, and homebrew, though you must be 21 or older for homebrew of course). If you weigh in on the upper half of that sliding scale we’ll also give you a commemorative glass.
You are invited to the 1st Annual Charm City Beer Wars hosted at Mother's Federal Hill Grille. You get to choose who makes the best craft beer in Maryland. You as the consumer get to try multiple samples to help determine who has the best beer in Maryland. It's $30 all you can try. One vote per participant. If you missed out on the Charm City Wing Wars- you really missed out. Get yours to this now before it sells out.Of course, if you have a designated driver or other such chaperone, there's naught keeping you from both save laws against public intoxication.
