From the press release:
Brewers and owners from local breweries will serve their own special batch of chili, while guests will sample each one and vote for their favorite.
This year’s participating breweries: King Harbor Brewing Co., of Redondo Beach, Brouwerji West of San Pedro, Phantom Carriage Brewery of Carson, Arts District Brewing of Los Angeles, Three Weavers Brewing of Inglewood, El Segundo Brewing Co., and Torrance’s HopSaint Brewing Co., Strand Brewing and Smog City.
Beers from each of the represented breweries will be served on draft and the area behind the fenced off to set up a “beer/chili garden” for the anticipated overflow crowd.
All proceeds from the chili cook-off benefit Providence TrinityCare Hospice in Torrance.
I’m not exactly a chili expert, but HopSaint’s chili is incredible, so the competition had better bring their game.
