"Hot and Sweaty" Meatball Eating Contest

The contest will give pepperphiles 10 minutes to eat as many of Wicked Awesome's delicious chicken meatballs as possible. The catch? Aside from each meatball being plenty spicy, a few select 'balls per tray will be laced with ultra-hot ghost peppers. Contestants looking to cool their mouths won't find much respite, either; the only beverage allowed to be consumed during that 10 minute window is Billy's Chilies from Twisted Pine Brewing Company of Boulder, Colorado. The mouth-tingling beer is made with Fresno, Anaheim, jalapeno, habanero, and Serrano peppers. Whatever lucky winner can stand the heat will end up with an epic prize: one of every craft beer that Wicked Awesome stocks, a prize worth $300.
