BURP'S Chili Cookoff

These photos were taken at the annual Chili Cookoff in May of 2004 and 2005 in Fairfax, Virginia held by the Washington, DC area homebrewers club Brewers United for Real Potables (BURP).

Naturally, beer is one of the required recipe ingredients for chilis cooked on-site at this competition.

All photos were taken with Canon 10D and Olympus C-4040Z digital cameras.
