For those not in the know, the Oregon Bartenders Guild will be hosting the cocktail competition portion of this years Great American Distillers Festival right here in Portland, Oregon August 23rd and 24th. Our good friends at Imbibe Magazine will be partnering with us to help ensure that this is the premier cocktail competition in the Pacific Northwest. As a competitor in last years event, I think I can promise that this year will be bigger, better organized, and more fun than ever before. I'll put more up about the competition as we move closer to the event, but this event is open to all professional bartenders. This is going to be a lot of fun, and the OBG board members organizing the event are full of great ideas and the energy necessary to make this event a spectacular success.
