chili cook off

Free Admission for the Chili Cook Off!!

Come in for our 2nd annual Chili Cook Off. Last year our Brewmaster, Scott won with Dan coming in a close second. This year there will be blood. Well, maybe not a bloodbath, but some great competition. Come be the judge for yourself.

About Twelve Rounds Brewing Company

Our passion for great brews and great food both began in the kitchen. Dan started brewing around 1990. Like any twenty-something, he and his friends wanted to brew beer to save money. He kept up the homebrewing on and off over the years and took up the hobby in earnest when he got married to Elle.

Along with homebrewing, we also got into charcuterie, cheese-making and even wine making. Our friends were honest enough to tell us to give up wine-making, kindly telling us that we were better homebrewers! Our homebrewing really took off, which meant taking over the garage and ramping up the brewing equipment. Our brewing days became a natural outlet for hosting all-day BBQs with family and friends. The backyard gained a pellet-smoker alongside the Weber grill. That’s what we call going the distance with brewing and charcuterie!

With family and friends raving about our homebrews, it was time to take it seriously. We entered the 2011 California State Fair and won three ribbons including first place for the Knockout Stout and second place for The Contender – our original Pale Ale. The following year Dan won first place for his Scottish Ale which is now the popular Sneaky Peat Scottish Ale on tap at the brewery.

With these ribbons, we decided in early 2012 to pursue opening their own microbrewery. Our first challenge seemed almost insurmountable: finding a name! We hit trademark snags with our first three names and finally scored with Twelve Rounds. After nearly three years battling construction challenges, we finally opened Twelve Rounds Brewing in August 1, 2015. Nearly a year later, we were back at the California State Fair, winning two ribbons: 2nd Place for our Miles Finch Marzen in the European Category and 3rd Place for our Brawler Barleywine in the Barleywine Category.

Event Submission Guidelines:

  • Events must promote and embody the spirit of Sacramento craft beer. The emphasis should be on quality beer that celebrates independent brewers, using traditional brewing techniques and embracing an innovative and pioneering spirit.
  • Events should be about craft beer and presented in a way that adds a cultural, educational, activity-oriented, or culinary context to the beer. Push your team to be creative.
  • Most importantly, events must be true events — meaning they must feature a special, unique or rare selection of beer, activity, guest and/or food component, and are generally considered special, exceptional occasions, not something that would be held on any given day of the year.
  • Sac Beer Week WILL NOT approve events centered on discounts or giveaways that are typical happy hours, pint nights or beer specials, that solely promote ‘every day’ tap lists, or that encourage people to drink irresponsibly.
