|Dear Saint Arnold
We hope you had yourself a Merry (and Beery)
Christmas. We had a great time with those of you who visited the brewery last
week for photos with Santa. We made sure he put you on the nice
Now, 2018 is nearly upon us. Per usual, we

11th Annual One
Sunday, January 28 – 1:00 – 4:00 PM
What started eleven years ago
as a small cookoff (featuring mainly chilis) in our old parking lot has evolved
into a huge cookoff of creative and eclectic dishes with a happy crowd and the
downtown skyline in the background. On Sunday, January 28, we’ll have 80 cooking
teams ready to serve you their tastiest dish made with Saint Arnold beer. It’s
one part chili cookoff, one part stew stampede, one part gumbo gauntlet and ten
parts Saint Arnold goodness.
A group of judges will sample all the
dishes and award one team the coveted One Pot Trophy. You get to taste all of
the dishes (or as many as you can!) and see if you agree with the
Proceeds from this event go to Kid’s Meals, an organization
that provides healthy lunches to preschool aged kids living in poverty. It’s
like Meals on Wheels, but for kids.
Tickets are $40 per person, and you
may purchase up to four tickets per email address. One Pot Showdown
always sells out very quickly.
Interesting in competing as a cooking team? As of the
writing of this sentence, we have a few spots remaining. If you want in, see
the rules and sign your team up
St. Patrick’s Day
Party + Donegal Beard Growing Competition
Guess what. In 2018, St.
Patrick’s Day falls on a Saturday. We didn’t really need a reason to
make our annual St. Patrick’s Day Party bigger and better than ever, but we’ll
take it. This time around, it will be an all day street party.
We’ll begin the day with
a special Irish Breakfast to get you prepared for the festivities (tickets for
the Irish Breakfast will go on sale at a later date). After that, we’ll open up
the brewery for an all day party featuring special beers, commemorative
glassware, food trucks, and live Irish music from Dead Rabbits, Murder the
Stout and others. Admission to our St. Patrick’s Day Party is
Of course, it wouldn’t be
a Saint Arnold St. Patrick’s Day Party without our Donegal Beard Growing
Competition. To stick with the bigger and better theme, we’re upping the ante
for the grand prize. This year, your beard could win you an exclusive membership
to the Saint Arnold Society – a
Here’s how to
Step one: Between January 1 and
January 6, shave any current facial hair you may have. Everyone must start
clean-shaven. Step two: Email us an official “before” photo of your clean-shaven

the Houston Chronicle’s website on your laptop or tablet and take a photo with
Email your photos no sooner than Monday, January 1 and no later

brewery during public hours, and we’ll take your photo for you.
three: start growing a beard. Step four: keep growing a beard. We will crown the
winner at our St. Patrick’s Day Party.
Fine print: Clean-shaven means no
facial hair. Sideburns must be cut at least halfway up the ear. Previous winners
are ineligible for two years. We will be seeking qualified, independent judges
