0 HOLDS BARRED!
Things are heating up as we head into the FOURTH round of The Grand Rapids Cocktail Guild - USBG series, IRON BARTENDER!
Join the GRCG again at Stella's Lounge Wednesday, where three impossibly talented spirits professionals will come face-to-face in a mixological battle-royale, with twists, turns, audience interaction, a live DJ, and tons of fun!
Come learn how cocktail-professionals devise new drinks, understand culinary conceptualization in a great new way, and watch the creative process in-action as each competitor has only 15 minutes to prepare two flawless libations to be held at the mercy of our brutal judges' panel, which includes this month:
- WZZM 13 Grand Rapids' very own Rachael Ruiz
- Jason Troy, cocktail impresario of Detroit's The Sugar House
- Tory O'Haire of Downtown Market Grand Rapids
- Chris Perkey of Osteria Rossa
and our special guest-judges, the winners of the Grand Cocktail Competition!
Seating is limited and first-come first-serve.
Doors open at 6:30pm.
Event begins at 7:00pm
This is a 21+ event
Our spirited challengers this month are among the greatest West Michigan has to offer:
Tracey Walker of Riverhouse Ada
Josh Hallwachs of Grand Rapids Brewing Company
Nate Cohn of Grove
The winner will receive our trophy for the month and the title of IRON BARTENDER...the losers must retreat in shame!
There will be a $5 cover charge at the door to support our monthly charity.
Join our hosts for the night, Adam Dickerson and Rob Hanks of The Grand Rapids Cocktail Guild for a night of fun, education, inspiration, blood, sweat, and tears in the best bar-fight this city has ever seen!
