THE FOOD GUY ; Beer and Chili Cook-Off Closes out Bazaar's Open-Air Season

Article excerpt

Peanut butter and jelly. Ham and cheese. Bacon and everything.

They're all two great tastes that taste great together. And here are two more: hops and heat. Or rather, beer and chili. To close out its open-air season, Charleston's East End Bazaar at the corner of Ruffner and Washington Street East (1428 Washington St. E. to be exact) is hosting a "Hops & Heat Appalachian Craft Beer and Chili Cook-Off Saturday Oct. 24 from 2 to 6 p.m.

The event, part of Charleston's FestivALL Fall festivities taking place across the city, will feature more than 30 craft beers from at least 10 Appalachian breweries.

And the day will culminate with celebrity judges and the public teaming up to crown the Bazaar's best chili in a competition among 14 cooks, with the winner walking away with a stained glass award creating by Bazaar artist Hubert Bain.

In addition to beer and chili, "Hops & Heat will feature the East End Bazaar's normal array of locally-sourced artists and artisans offering crafts, food, music and more. The BrotherSisters and Corey Hager will perform from 24 pm and 46 pm, respectively, to keep the crowd entertained as they sip, savor and shop. Additional food will be offered for sale from Mary Lou's BBQ Kitchen and Poggio's Wood- Fired Pizza.

Tickets cost $25 and include unlimited 4-ounce samples of beer, unlimited chili samples, three 12-ounce beer tickets and one branded tasting cup. Only 450 tickets will be sold, so snag yours now at http://bit.ly/1hibtr8.
