Philly food is so much more than cheesesteaks. Let us show you.

4th Annual Winter’s Warmers Will Close Out February

phb-ww2016On Saturday, February 27, the Philly Homebrew Club will be taking over the Skybox Event Center in Fishtown for their annual Winter’s Warmers Chili Cookoff and winter ale homebrew competition.  In a break from their usual events, this one will be held on Saturday afternoon, from 4 – 7pm, and will be donating a portion of the proceeds to Philly PAWS.

Tickets for the event are a scant $30 (plus fees) and will get you all-you-can-eat chili, including sides and cornbread, as well as beer sampling from local breweries and homebrewers.  You’ll also walk away with a custom-made Philly Homebrew Club tasting glass.  If you want to wait for some reason, tickets at the door will be $40.  Get them early, because the event is well worth attending.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to join the competition, there is a $40 entry fee that will get you a t-shirt and event glass, and allow one teammate to accompany you to the event.  You have to bring two gallons of pre-warmed chili in a hotel pan/chafing dish, but anyone who makes chili knows that two gallons is the bare minimum anyway.  And if you bring a third gallon, you can get another teammate into the event.  There will be two categories for voting, No Beans (Traditional) and Anything Goes.  Prizes for the judging will be $200 (1st place), $100 (2nd), $50 (3rd), and $200 for People’s Choice in each category.

If you’d rather brew beer than make chili, you can enter into the winter ales competition for $6 per entry until February 24, and the best in show prize will be awarded at the cookoff.  For all the rules and admissible ale styles, read here.

Winter is just gearing up here in Philly, and will be in full force at the end of February.  There’s no better way to shake off the winter doldrums than with some steaming vats of chili and a bottomless beer in hand.  For $30, you can’t get much better in the middle of winter.
