As part of the fourth annual Smokin’ on the Water BBQ Cook-Off in Polson on Saturday, those looking for delicious smoky meat can also enjoy beers from around the Flathead Valley. In what’s being dubbed a “Brew Tour” rather than a “Brewfest,” the event will feature beer from Tamarack, Great Northern, Flathead Lake Brewing and Glacier Brewing. The Brew Tour starts at 11 a.m. and lasts until 8 p.m. at the KwaTaqNuk Resort, where $3 will get you a cup of beer or $7 will get you a souvenir glass pint with a fill.
The Smokin’ on the Water BBQ Cook-Off will take place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. with the following categories being featured:
- 2:00 pm – Sauce
- 2:30 pm – Beef
- 3:00 pm – Pork
- 3:30 pm – Chicken
- 4:00 pm – Open category (anything that is “edible and grilled”)
Awards for the food are slated to be presented around 4:30 p.m.
