The 19th Annual Chili & Beer Festival was an incredible success. The Chamber would like to extend the biggest thank you to Silipint, Peak Property Management, and Mountain Spirits for their support of another fabulous Chili & Beer. A HUGE Thank you to all of our breweries, chili cookers, and vendors who made this all possible. Thanks to Mark Morris and the boys at Rapidgrass, as well as Kevin Doherty and the members of Millk who played wonderful sets for all of our attendees to enjoy. Last but not least, thanks to everyone who came out to be a part of Chili & Beer; your passion for great local events is without a doubt our number one reason for success year in and year out. We will see you in 2018!
