In honor of retired San Bernardino Police Officer Gabe Garcia, Brew Rebellion made a specialty brew bottled with an original keepsake label.

The Blues, Brews, Badges, and BBQ was formerly known as the “Route 66 Rendezvous Culinary Cookoff.” This year there were four BBQ teams – the San Bernardino Police Department, the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, and a team from Blue Rebellion.

Many of the teams prepared days ahead of the event to make sure their equipment, recipes, and time management were in optimal shape in order to present their best dishes.
