9th Annual BBG "Ryes Up Against Cystic Fibrosis" Gala
Many of the best craft bartenders in Baltimore mixing cocktails at one event, where else will you find such a good time?
Join the members of the Baltimore Bartenders’ Guild for our 9th annual fundraiser "Ryes Up", benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Maryland. This year our featured rye spirits will include BSC "Epoch" Rye, Catoctin Creek "Roundstone" Rye, Redemption Rye and Russell's Reserve Rye. Enjoy samples of up to 20 different delicious cocktails crafted by BBG members and small bites from 15 different local restaurants, along with local coffee. Bid on our fabulous silent auction from over 100 items, while sampling wine from Lanterna, other non whiskey spirits & punch, along with local craft beer by Peabody Heights and Manor Hill. We have also included other spirit producers (Republic Restoratives, Tenth Ward, Sagamore and more to come) in the event as tasting tables so you can sample many different spirits.
30 VIP tickets will be sold. What does VIP include you ask? VIP ticket holders will get to attend a intimate whiskey tasting seminar at 4pm (arrive by 3:45pm please). In the seminar you'll get to learn about the wonderful world of whiskey from the lovely people at Samson & Surrey (Widow Jane, Brenne & other spirits) and receive a fun swag bag to take with you. You will also be granted early access to the event before the main crowd starts to make their way in. Tickets are limited so don't delay. (INDUSTRY DISCOUNT NOT AVAILABLE FOR VIP)
Finally, a cocktail competition to determine who has created this year's best Rye Whiskey cocktail. Join in and vote on the "People Choice" for both cocktail and food.
Come thirsty and leave happy!
Please drink and travel safely.
