The job of the tasters is to taste the barbecuers’ and brewers’ delectable offerings and cast your secret vote. How sweet is that? Prizes and bragging rights are awarded to audience favorites in all categories.
There is still room for more contestants. Prospective contestants should call, email or come by the Mateel office at 923-3368 to register. Barbecue contestants will need to provide their own barbecue ingredients, and serving utensils, plus make enough of their dish to offer samplers to a crowd of about 300 people. Home brewers need to provide keg or bottled beer samples (also to a crowd of 300) and are responsible for serving their product during the event.
Admission is at the door only and is a steal at only $15 for the barbecue and music ticket or $25 to include unlimited beer tasters and a commemorative tasting glass. For more information visit www.mateel.org or call 923-3368.
