The 9th annual Hoboken Chili Cook Off & Homebrew Contest, hosted by TRUE Mentors, Hoboken's only one-to-one mentoring program. Help us raise $20,000 and support our mentoring program. Join us on Saturday, March 10th, 2018 and bring your taste buds and best beer-drinking buddies to Our Lady of Grace, located on the corner of 4th and Willow. The Battle in the Boken' takes place from 2-6pm. Enjoy live music by Gravy Train, chili and beer samples and of course some heated competition!

100% of the proceeds go directly towards mentoring programs for children in Hoboken!

The Chili & Homebrew contest is FREE to enter. The competitions are judged separately; each category a separate judges panel. The categories this year are:

  • Judges Choice 
  • Fan Favorite 
  • Brewer's Choice (Departed Soles)

The Judges Panel will award 1st and 2nd place prizes to the top chili & beer entries.

The Fan Favorite awarded to the Chili & Beer chosen by the fans! 

Winners of the Judges Choice & Fan Favorite Award Winners will receive gift certificates from local Hoboken businesses, a trophy and of course the glory of winning the 2018 Battle in the Boken'

Last year we had over $3K in prizes and raised $16,000 for the children of Hoboken!

Your donations make a difference. Help support a great cause and make this year our best fundraiser yet! #itsforthekids
