A Fundraiser at Mayflower Brewing Company to benefit the South Shore Community Action Council


On Sunday, September 8, 2019  in Plymouth, MA, Mayflower Brewing Company will host the Fourth Annual America’s Hometown Throwdown Chef Competition to benefit the South Shore Community Action Council’s Food Resources Program which coordinates the collection, storage and distribution of emergency food relief for hungry people of all ages throughout the South Shore. The event kicks off at 11 am at the brewery, located at 12 Resnik Road in the Plymouth Industrial Park. Tickets can be purchased at http://bit.ly/Throwdown19. Each General Admission ticket purchase for $25 will send one backpack of food to a local family in need and every All Access ticket purchase for $75 will send three backpacks of food to local families in need.

Mayflower Brewing Company, along with Plymouth Sunrise Rotary, invite the local community to come together for the fourth year of this amazing event! Eight chefs from local restaurants, from Plymouth and beyond, will be competing in this highly unique and entertaining event. The competing chefs include: Jim Casey {Mallebar Brasserie & Blue-Eyed Crab}, Stephen Coe {SWAT Food Truck}, Patrick Gilmartin {Su Casa}, Rob Goldrick {Salt Raw Bar & Fine Cuisine}, Tyler Joubert {Mahoney’s on Main}, Jillian Rivers {Mirbeau Inn & Spa}, Marc Swierkowski {Ella’s Wood Burning Oven}, and Mike Wisdom {The Tasty}.

Attendees are invited to watch three fast-paced rounds of cooking competitions as the eight chefs are narrowed down to four, then two, then the winner will be announced. Secret ingredients, Mayflower beer, and crowd encouragement make each round an engaging experience. Attendees cheer on their favorite chefs/restaurants, as well as get to know new ones they may not have visited yet.  In between rounds of the cooking competition, The Pour Guys will be hosting the Second Annual Bartender Competition. The participating bartenders include: Sunny Beane {The Tasty}, Nicolette Crocker {Solstice Restaurant}, Nick Crosby {Su Casa}, Taylor Currier {Tar Bar}, Nick Ghilardi {Blue-Eyed Crab}, Mark Marinelli {Mallebar Brasserie}, and Ashley Sullivan {Salt Raw Bar & Fine Cuisine}.  Additionally, the event includes food from each of the eight restaurants and a beverage garden.

Jeff Nardone, head of sales for Mayflower Brewing Company, reflects on how the event has grown over the past few years but has always held true to its mission. “It’s an amazing example of how our community pulls together to help each other. Sure, it’s a friendly competition but at the heart of this event, we’re all teaming up with the same goal,” says Jeff.  Mayflower, SSCAC, Plymouth Sunrise Rotary, all of the chefs, bartenders, restaurants, and generous sponsors are looking forward to a successful day on September 8th!
