Sweetwater Brewery

Our teams are registered and perfecting their recipes. YOU are the ones that get to drink beer (or wine), eat chili, and vote. I mean, how easy is that???


We have reduced the price of the guest ticket to allow members to bring friends and family to this fun event for $40 each. This includes Sweetwater Beer and all the chili you can sample! 

7th Annual NACE Chili Cookoff at Sweetwater Brewing Company

Come to Taste or Compete!

Drink up from Sweetwater's Brews on tap or grab a glass of wine and get ready to chow down.

For more information, including additional rules and judging criteria, AND TO SIGN UP YOUR TEAM, please reach out to Laura Burchfield at [email protected]


1. Teams consist of 5 OR LESS people. Everyone is welcome to cheer on their favorite team but nobody wants too many cooks in the kitchen.

2. All team members MUST register online. 

3. At least 1 of your team members needs to be a current and in good standing member of NACE.

4. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places by our judges. 

5. One Tasters Choice Award will be awarded to the team that gets the most votes from participants.

6. Don't forget about our Best Theme prize. Bring your A-game. We love costumes, themes, decor, and any extra special big guns you bring out.

7. We are feeling super generous and offering the member rate of $40 to everyone that comes out to the chili cookoff. Members, this means you can bring as many guests as you would like for a discounted price.

8. REMEMBER that this is all in good fun and a great way to bring together our industry friends and family! We are so excited to see what your talent and creativity brings to, yet, another year together!
