We all know that Cincinnati is known for their chili, but how does your compete? Today we celebrate all styles - Traditional Red Chili, Chili Verde, Vegetarian Chili, and White Chicken Chili. As a special twist, you must use Brink Beer in your chili! Or just attend and enjoy tasting beers, chili, and voting for people’s choice.
No cost to enter, but the form below must be completed and submitted by 10/9 in order to compete into the chili cook-off. Limited to the first 40 entries. One crock pot of your chili is required to compete.
Crock Pot drop off begins at 12pm (noon) on 10/19 to the brewery's tap room and must be there by 12:45.
You are required to use one of our beers in your chili. Contestants can select which beer(s) they would like to us as well as the quantity, but we will ask for you to provide beer used at the event. Crowlers can be purchased in the tap room to-go for your use.
You may also provide accoutrements for your chili (ie: cheese, sour cream, etc).
Brink Brewing Co will provide bowls and spoons.

Join us for the release of the 2019 Brinktoberfest our Oktoberfest! In honor of the season we will have a Masskrugstemmen (aka Stein-Holding Contest). Steinholding is a traditional Bavarian strength contest in which competitors hold a full one-liter beer stein (or Masskrug/Mass in German) out in front of their bodies with a straight arm, parallel to the ground. The cost to compete is just $15 which includes a liter of beer and stein to take home!
Starting at 6:30pm we're doing a juice box hoisting for the kiddos because we think they should get to be a part of the fun! Then we will roll into our men and women's heats starting around 7pm. We'll award both a Woman and Man winner!
Winners will go home with a Brink gift card!

In the early 90's, long before people were talking about craft beer, our Uncle Jack sparked our interest in the craft beer world. His refrigerator was full of only specialty, full-flavored beers from his travels abroad. His passion and insight are what led us into brewing and travelling across the globe to hundreds of breweries. The spark that Uncle Jack lit many years ago is what ultimately drove us to want to open a brewery. More than anything though, he taught us that there is so much more to good beer than just the ingredients brewed...
Good beer is about the people, the stories, and the experience.
We were thrilled Uncle Jack was able to make it the opening of Brink Brewing. Jack lost his fight with cancer on August 15, 2017, just months after we opened. We knew we wanted to do something annually to celebrate Jack’s spirit; of course that meant enjoying good beer, music, and friends old & new.
As part of Jack Fest we will be releasing a barrel aged Duncan Clan, the beer named after Uncle Jack.
$15/bottle, limit 4 per customer.
3-6pm - John Ford
7-11pm - 3 Peace
