10th Annual BBG Ryes Up Against Cystic Fibrosis Cocktail Competition

The Baltimore Bartenders' Guild's Ryes Up Against Cystic Fibrosis Annual Gala is now upon its 10th year. Due to the pandemic, we are doing things a bit differently this year.

In order to keep everyone safe and the spirit of Ryes Up alive, we have chosen to create an at-home virtual event. To participate, purchase your ticket and receive 12 full-sized unique rye whiskey cocktails created by 12 of the best cocktail bartenders in Baltimore. This year we have teamed up with local and regional distilleries to keep support local.  Our spirit sponsors are: Baltimore Spirit Co., Catoctin Creek, McClintock Distilling, NYDC, Republic Restoratives and Sagamore Spirits. These wonderful spirit producers have donated their delicious rye whiskey for our bartenders to craft creative cocktails with. 

In order to receive your cocktails, purchase a ticket with your chosen pick up location. Pick up will be from Thursday, March 18 to Sunday, March 21.  Please select the ticket location you wish to pick up from and see the time frame also in your receipt emailed to you.  Dutch Courage 12-7pm... Mr. Nice Guy 4-8pm... True Chesapeake 3-8pm. 

From the time you receive your cocktails you have until Saturday, March 27th to enjoy them and vote for your favorite. With each order, you will receive at Tasting Passport for you to keep notes and score the cocktails. This way, when it's time to vote, you have your notes to pick your favorite cocktail as the "People's Choice" Winner.  

On Sunday, March 28th at 7pm we will stream a virtual wrap party with hosts Aurora Gorealis of the Shocktail Hour and Lance Bankerd, founder of the House of Bankerd and local theatrical artist.  Our hosts will take us on a 1-hour journey where the BBG bartenders that created each cocktail you enjoyed will be revealed. Our guest speaker, Heather Kohlberger, will talk about life with Cystic Fibrosis and our professional judges will also join us, giving their thoughts on the cocktails.  Lastly, we will reveal which bartender and cocktail won "People's Choice" favorite cocktail and the judge's pick for winner of the 2021 Ryes Up Cocktail Competition.  

We will also be including a virtual silent auction full of awesome baskets of booze, gift cards to local establishments and many other fantastic items.  Don't forget to place your bids!
