2nd Annual Chili Cook-Off. January 20th, 2019

  • Downey Brewing Company 13121 Prospect Street Dearborn United States (map)

Are you feeling Chili?

You know what goes good in the dead of winter? Chili. Chili does. So far the winter has been kind to us but it’s Michigan so you never know.  Either way we are excited to announce our 2nd annual chili cook-off on January 20th!!!  Mark your calendars!!


Just like last year we are going to keep it simple. There will be just one category. “BEST OVERALL.” What does best overall mean? I don’t know you tell me. Just go with what you feel, maybe try and please the crowd, maybe spice it up. Or go with something unique. Beans, no beans, the choice yours. Get creative, try a chicken flavor or something else you’ve got up your sleeve.

*** If you’re planning on participating please mark yourself going so we can make the necessary preparations ***


On the day of the event (Jan 20th) come between 1-2pm to register yourself and your best chili.

Voting will start and 2pm and run through 4pm. We will have a ballot box and the chilies will be judged blind by all participating and visiting the taproom that day. [ONE VOTE PER PERSON]

At 4pm we will tally the votes.

- The chili with the most votes will be awarded 1st place
- Second most votes = 2nd place
- Third most votes = 3rd place


- 1st Place = $25.00 Gift Card + Two free pint cards
- 2nd Place = Growler + Growler fill (any beer)
- 3rd Place = Two free pint cards
