International Beer Tasting and chili cook-off offers something for everyone

Urbana’s International Beer Tasting and Chili Cook-Off is an event that features beers from around the world and some of the best tasting chili that the community has to offer. In its ninth year, the annual festival, which features a chili competition, food from local vendors and beer samples, will culminate all that is great about the fall season this Saturday, Oct. 9.

... over 150 beers will be featured from around the world. Each 4 ounce sample will run you 75 cents, essentially costing you only $3 for each pint of specialty beer. Representatives from featured breweries will be on hand to answer questions during the samplings.

The event is held rain or shine, gates open at 3 p.m. and the first 500 people get a free sampling glass. It will take place at the intersection of Main Street and Broadway Avenue. Tickets are $5 before-hand and can be purchased at Canopy Club, Exile on Main Street, Family Pride Convenience Store, Crane Alley, The Blind Pig Brewery and Tickets will also be available at the festival for $7.

It's no, Great Taste of the Midwest, but it's an ok beer event.
