“Football season has officially begun and football in the south means tailgating season! What better way to kick it off then by the inaugural BSB Tailgate Takeover, the ultimate tailgate competition in Charleston, SC. In honor of Charleston Beer Week, join us on Monday, September 9th for the best tailgate competition. The event is free for attendees. So, head on down to Bay Street Biergarten for BSB Tailgate Takeover and stick around for Monday night football!

EVENT DETAILS:

CONTESTANTS:
The competition aspect is open to Charleston breweries, restaurants, and food trucks. Contestants must provide their own food/protein for the competition and tailgating necessities and will choose one food item to grill from this list (brats, burgers, wings, or hot dogs). They must also incorporate the common denominator ingredient into their food item. The common denominator ingredient will be either a craft brew or liquor provided by Bay Street Biergarten. The common denominator will officially be announced soon. Contestants will sell sample-size food items to attendees. Contestants will have approximately 2 to 2.5 hours to grill their food item for judging. Winners will be announced during the half time show of the first football game that night. Contestants CANNOT sell any other food items since this is a tailgating competition. If you want to be a contestant in this competition there is a fee. We only have 15 spots available, so please sign up using the link at the bottom. Our events coordinator, Cara (cara@baystreetbiergarten.com), will email you after you sign up for more details and information about payment.

JUDGING:
We will have three categories for judging aspects and one winner from each category. The categories for judging are Professional Judge Winner, People’s Choice Winner, and Overall Best Tailgate Design Winner. Attendees can purchase as many raffle tickets as they want for voting purposes.

For the Professional Judge Winner, selected Charleston Judges will try contestant’s food item and vote on the winner – majority vote wins. The winner will receive a “2019 BSB Tailgate Takeover Professional Judge Winner” plaque and bragging rights.

For the People’s Choice Winner, attendees will purchase $1 raffle tickets from the raffle ticket booth to vote on which contestant’s food item they liked the best. They will drop their raffle ticket into the corresponding contestant’s jar to “cast their vote”. The contestant with the most raffle tickets for this category will win. The winner will receive a “2019 BSB Tailgate Takeover People’s Choice Winner” plaque and bragging rights.

For the Overall Best Tailgate Design Winner, contestants will design their tailgate area and attendees will purchase $1 raffle tickets and drop their raffle tickets in the Overall Best Tailgate Design Jar to place their vote. The contestant with the most raffle tickets in their jar for this category wins. The winner will receive a “2019 BSB Tailgate Takeover Overall Best Tailgate Design Winner” plaque.
