Feb. 15, 2011

MILWAUKEE (February 15, 2011) – Competition is heating up at the Milwaukee Public Market, where The Milwaukee Special Olympics Young Professional Board will be hosting “Chili Brew,” a chili cook off and beer tasting fundraiser on Saturday, March 12 from 5:30 to 8: 30 pm. All proceeds benefit Special Olympics Wisconsin-Greater Milwaukee Area.

 

Bragging rights are on the line, as distinguished Milwaukee Chefs pair up with local breweries to craft special chili concoctions made from Milwaukee’s most famous beverage – beer.

 

Two awards will be given for the best chili – crowd favorite and judge’s choice. The winner for the judge’s choice award will be chosen from a panel of Special Olympics of Wisconsin athletes and local Milwaukee media.

 

Attendees can enjoy live entertainment and enter to win exciting raffle prizes as they sample our chef’s unique chili recipes, which complement the flavors of craft beer from local breweries. Dishes and pairings will be provided by numerous partners including Water Buffalo, St. Francis Brewery, Big Bay Brewery, Horny Goat Brewing Co. and Sprecher.

 

Tickets are currently on sale for $15. Admission at the door will be $18. To purchase tickets or find out more information about Milwaukee “Chili Brew,” contact Brandon Tanner at 262.241.7786 ext. 14 or btanner@specialolympicswisconsin.org.
