This is the fifth year of the annual cook-off and the second year at Wolverine State Brewing Company in Ann Arbor.  “The A2CT Chili Cook-off has developed a real following,” says fundraising chair, Joyce Casale. “Each year more people attend, and each year we have a combination of former chili contestants and new ones. I’m amazed at the variety of chili entered and the creativity of the chefs. Add in the terrific locally-brewed beer from Wolverine, and you have a perfect afternoon of food, drink, and fun!”
