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 annual fundraiser "Ryes Up", benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Maryland. This year we've opened up the whiskey selection to Heaven Hill's Rittenhouse Rye, Sagamore Spirits Rye, Wild Turkey Rye and our long time sponsor Diageo with George Dickel Rye. Enjoy samples of 20 different elixirs handcrafted by BBG members and small bites from 15 different local restaurants, along with locally roasted coffee. Bid on fabulous silent auction items, while sampling wine, other non whiskey spirits & punch, and local craft beer. We have also included other rye producers in the event as tasting tables so you can sample many different rye whiskies.
30 VIP tickets will be sold this year. What does VIP include you ask? VIP ticket holders will get to attend a intimate whiskey tasting seminar by Beam Suntory brand ambassador at 4pm (arrive by 3:45pm please). In the seminar you'll get to learn about the wonderful world of whiskey by a industry professional and receive a killer 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!
