The annual Saltwater Brew ‘N’ Que is a mouth-watering, professional barbecue competition and craft beer festival rolled into one and all taking place on Virginia’s lovely Chincoteague Island!
Unlimited beer tastings, served in a commemorative, Saltwater Brew ‘N’ Que glass that you can take home, will help you to wash down all the sweet, hot, and sticky barbecue you can handle: pulled pork, ribs, brisket, chickens, sausages, and of course, all the fixins’! Oh, my!
This year’s event will include both a People’s Choice chicken wing contest (Friday) and a more general BBQ competition (Saturday), accredited by the Kansas City Barbeque Society Competition. The people’s choice wing tasting event allows festival attendees to purchase blocks of five tickets and a ballot to vote for your favorite wing entry (one wing sample per ticket). Tickets will be available for sale on-site Friday at the Chincoteague Fairgrounds entrance, while supply last.
While vendors, entertainment, and teams are still signing up, enough have been confirmed to paint a good, solid picture of what this year’s Saltwater Brew ‘N’ Que will look like:
