Description

Taste the future of Houston Barbecue

**To ensure the best possible experience for all guests, only a limited number of tickets will be made available for sale. Tickets sold out well in advance of last year's event - we encourage you to purchase tickets as soon as possible to ensure availability.**

**All tickets sold in advance online. No ticket sales at the door.**

The Houston Barbecue Festival and Saint Arnold Brewing Company announce the 3rd annual Houston BBQ Throwdown! featuring 14 of Houston's best barbecue restaurants competing to create the next great barbecue dish that represents Houston-style barbecue.

Ticket holders will be able to sample each of the barbecue competition entries as well as enjoy great Saint Arnold beer.

Participating barbecue joints include (subject to change): Beaver's Westheimer, Blood Bros. BBQ, The Brisket House, El Burro & the Bull, Feges BBQ (People's Choice winner from 2016), Gatlin's BBQ, Harlem Road Texas BBQ, Pappa Charlies Barbeque, Pinkerton's Barbecue, The Pit Room, Roegel’s Barbecue Co, Tejas Chocolate Craftory, Tin Roof BBQ, with more to come.

Much like Kansas City-style barbecue is associated with “burnt ends” and Memphis-style is known for pork ribs, Houston-style barbecue will become known for dishes that incorporate the many diverse culinary influences of this “creole” city.

A blind judging process featuring barbecue experts from around Texas will pick a single winner from the entries. There will also be a “People’s Choice” award in which guests can vote for their favorite dish.

The barbecue judging panel will include chef and pitmaster Ronnie Killen (Judge's winner from 2016), Houston Chronicle restaurant critic Alison Cook, barbecue photographer Robert J. Lerma, pitmaster Wayne Mueller of Louie Mueller Barbecue in Taylor, TX, and D'Artagnan Bebel, Vice President and General Manager of Fox 26 television station.

**A very limited number of guest tickets will be sold.** $65 general admission includes Saint Arnold beer and samples of each barbecue joint’s competition dish. $130 VIP tickets also include access to the private Saint Arnold Investor’s Pub for viewing of the judge’s panel.
