Editor's note 3/9: This article has been updated to reflect Hernandez's renaming of the event from "Michelada Madness" to "Michelada Mania" following a trademark incident.

Original story:

Ever wondered who has the best michelada in San Antonio? Well, now you don't have to (as long as you think it's any one of Johnny Hernandez's family of restaurants).

Chef Johnny Hernandez will host a "Michelada Mania" event to see which of his eateries can earn bragging rights. La Gloria at the Pearl, La Gloria at the Dominion, The Fruteria, Villa Rica (his newest venture), Burgerteca and Hernandez himself will go head-to-head at the throwdown on Sunday, March 18.

There will be a $10 entrance fee for the event, running from 1 to 5 p.m. at La Gloria at the Dominion. The fee will get you a michelada sample from each competitor as well as an order of tacos. You can purchase tickets here.
