Veteran’s Day Block Party With A BBQ Twist

We have something new up our sleeve – Q-Masters, Chefs + Vets! Experience a Veteran’s Day block party like never before, presented by the Big Green Egg, Service Brewing Company and The Local Palate Magazine. We are shutting down the streets, listening to live music, and sampling any and every grilled creation the Q-Masters have to offer – all while benefiting a cause close to home.


Eleven legendary pitmasters, grill masters and chefs are traveling near and far to celebrate, relax, show support and grill some finger-lickin’ good foods. BBQ sensations such as Kent and Kevin Rathbun of Kent Rathbun Concepts and Rathbun’s Restaurants and local favorite, Bryan Furman of B’s Cracklin’ BBQ are bringing the heat. You can read more about the celebrity and guest participants here.


Each participant will prepare delicious eats for hundreds that gather on Indian Street with us. We can smell the BBQ and taste the beverages now…

Not only are we excited about the food and fellowship, but the cause we are benefitting is near to our hearts.

The Tiny House Project for Homeless Veterans, a Chatham-Savannah Homeless Authority initiative, is right in our backyard. This Savannah Food & Wine Festival event will be highlighting the project in hopes of gaining awareness, passion, and a sense of community support for those working tirelessly to see a successful change in the city. The goal of this event is to raise enough money to help the Tiny House Project for Homeless Veterans build one of the homes in the community. The festival has expectations of exceeding these dreams with a portion of the proceeds directly benefiting the project.


Service Brewing Company is hosting this spectacular block party in their own innovative atmosphere. Located in downtown Savannah, the veteran-owned and operated brewery will serve as the perfect venue for an event like Q-Masters, Chefs + Vets. Their dedication to crafting true American-made beers is evident the moment you step foot in the brewery. The walls are filled with American service and sacrifice traits and a feeling of gratitude occupies the entire building.

What better way to thank our Veterans, reflect on their sacrifices, and continue our efforts in our own city than a backyard boogie BBQ such as this?

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here. You don’t want to miss the first ever Q-Masters, Chefs + Vets and a chance to make a difference!
