April 28 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm
It is $20 to attend the live show which will take place in Indiana/Illinois rooms on the 3rd floor. There is limited capacity so it is first come first serve. A free live stream watch party will take place in Great Lakes 1.
Battle of the Briar competition will take place at the 2023 Chicago Pipe Show. Three world class pipe makers will battle it out using identical materials and tools to see who can make the best briar pipe in one hour. Attendees can watch the event live in person, at the Pipe Show watch party, or via social media platform (link to be made available soon).
This year’s pipe carving contestants are Jared Coles, Scottie Piersel and Tommaso Ascorti. The contest will be hosted by Jeff Gracik (J Alan Pipes) and Steve Fallon (PipeStud)
