Do You Do the Best BBQ?
SoHum Beer Fest & Smoke Off Seeks BBQ & Homebrew Contestants
On Saturday, August 20th, the Mateel Community Center in Redway will present the 3rd annual SoHum Beer Fest & Smoke Off, a BBQ and beer competition where grill masters, home brewers, and local breweries put their skills to the test with prizes and bragging rights awarded to audience favorites in all categories.
BBQ contestants must provide their own BBQ, ingredients, and serving utensils, plus make enough of their dish to offer samplers to a crowd of about 200 people. Home brewers must provide keg or bottled beer samples (also to a crowd of 200) and are responsible for serving their product during the event, which will also feature beers and reps from almost every brewery in Humboldt and Mendocino Counties.
All BBQ and home brew contestants will receive two free passes to the event in exchange for their participation, plus get the chance to win some great BBQ and beern related prizes. Interested participants should call the Mateel office ASAP at 923-3368 to sign up in advance or for more information.
Doors open to the public at 4pm and the fun will start immediately with beer/ BBQ samplers and live local music. Complimentary BBQ samplers are offered to all event attendees and will be served until gone. MCC will also be offering full BBQ plates and a variety of traditional side dishes, desserts, and refreshments for purchase.
Admission will be at the door only. The BBQ and music ticket is $12 and the all-inclusive ticket with unlimited beer tasting is $20.
