It is time again for your favorite bartenders and barbacks from around Pensacola to show their skills. O'Riley's Irish Pub Downtown is hosting the 3rd annual Bartending Championship and we want you to help us pick the best of the best. Each bartender will be given one spirit and one special ingredient that they must combine in the cocktail, anything else is up to their imagination. Last year we had some exciting combinations and a few of the drinks made it on our menu.
This year we will be co-hosting with Krewe of St. Patrick and the USBG Pensacola.
The Krewe of St. Patrick will be raising funds for the Heroes on the Water - Emerald Coast Chapter helping veterans in the gulf coast area. The barback challenge and military kayak races will be outside with the krewe.
For $25 you will be able to taste all of the bartender's cocktails, enjoy free food, taste samples from our beer and liquor partners and help the Krewe of St. Patrick raise funds. Your help is greatly appreciate, so spread the word and we will see you on August 27th at 2 PM after our Sunday brunch.

Secondly we will have a small judges panel that will be scoring each drink on a wide variety of categories. The top three places will be determined by these judges. There will also be a prize for the top winner based on customer votes.
Barbacks are asked to only bring their stamina. Be ready to run some ice and empty kegs! The fastest person in each competition will be winning prizes.
Bartenders will need all their required bar tools, any presentation items for their cocktail, any extra ingredients outside the two provided ingredients. Be prepared to make around 200 small servings and one standard serving for display.
Prizes will include a wide verity of bar industry items, gift card and cash prizes.
