Virginia Chili Blues and Brews: What’s on Tap This Year

A Hot Mix of Blues and Chili: The Shenandoah Valley Blues ‘n Brews Festival

Shenandoah Valley Blues n BrewsIt’s the perfect combination, chili and Blues, especially when both are served up with a passion you can feel in the air!

As the promo suggests, “This is not some cutesy little chili cook off.” Oh no. This chili cook off isn’t for the fainthearted. With first prize of $1000, there’s no need to keep grandma’s prize chili recipe shelved in a Southern Living cookbook. Come and compete!

For the rest of us, as part of the admission fee, we get to taste LOTS of great chili! And you can enjoy an excellent selection of local and regional brews on tap, too.

There will be two ID stations and two brew lines featuring a generous selection of mega and micro brews. Chili and beer. The ultimate feel-good culinary combination.
