Oakland's North Coast Chili Crawl

It's time for Oakland's 3rd Annual North Coast Brewing Company Chili Crawl! Join us for a little friendly neighborhood competition on Saturday, November 11th from 2pm - 6pm.

This year we have FIVE stops on the crawl: CommonWealth Cafe & Pub, Blind Tiger, The Double Standard, The Good Hop and Telegraph! The reigning champ from 2017 is Blind Tiger - who's gonna steal the crown???

- Each location will be cookin' up their own batch of chili, each using a different North Coast beer in the recipe.

- All YOU have to do is visit each location, order a North Coast beer (various pour sizes available!) and try your complimentary taste of chili! You can start and finish in whatever order you like.

- VOTE for your favorite chili! You can pick up a voting card and chili crawl map at any of the 5 locations. But remember - your People’s Choice vote only counts if you visit all 5 stops on the crawl.

- THEN: Join us at Blind Tiger at 6pm for our official awards ceremony, hosted by the one and only Dan Bollwinkel (Bully!!) of North Coast. We’ll have a panel of judges who will make the final call on the official champion of 2019.

Come show some Town Love with us and let's get our chili and North Coast beer on, folks.

Brewed in collaboration with Glen Hay Falconer Foundation Scholarship recipients, this year’s Sasquatch Legacy beer is a fruity and subtly spicy Saison, dry hopped with Ella hops. Pouring golden in color, this collaboration beer features an uplifting grapefruit hop aroma with hints of spice.

Started by Walking Man Brewing in 2006, the Sasquatch Legacy Project transitioned to Ninkasi Brewing in 2012. Each year, Glen Hay Falconer Scholarship recipients gather in Eugene to brew a commemorative batch in honor of the late brewer, Glen Hay Falconer. This year’s beer was developed by the 2017 scholarship recipients: Jen Jordan of Anchor Brewing Company, Aaron Blonden of Chainline Brewing Company, Alyson Hartwig formerly of Dry Dock Brewing Company, and Matt Ponichtera of Maui Brewing Co.
