Amateur BBQ will be prepared completely on site and be entered into a judged competition with entries being due each hour starting at noon. Entry categories include Chicken, Pork Ribs, Pulled Pork, and Brisket. Prize money is awarded for the top 3 entries in each category so the BBQ-ers will be bringing their best BBQ! Professional BBQ will be prepared either on site or at their respective kitchens and served at the competition. The professionals will compete in the category of pork ribs and be judged by popular vote from anyone with a BBQ or Combination wristband. The Waterloo Optimist Club is committed to having plenty of great BBQ on site to sample. We promise, you wont leave hungry!
Homebrew tasting 11 AM-4 PM: Must be 21 to participate and drink samples. Each homebrew or combination wristband includes a commemorative 12 oz glass with the 2018 Beer-B-Que logo. It also includes samples of homebrewed beer hand-crafted by members of The Ferm Homebrew Club of Monroe County as well as other brewers representing other clubs in the St. Louis area. If you have a wristband, you will help decide the best beer at the event with the winning beer to be brewed at Stubborn German Brewing Company in Waterloo. The Ferm members are super excited to show off their creations and there will be a huge selection of beer styles to sample from!
Brewers and BBQers will be set up next to one another to allow patrons that purchase the combination wristband to sample both beer and food as they walk through the event grounds.
