Presented by the United States Bartenders' Guild, the craft cocktail competition is the highlight of an eight-hour celebration of the local cocktail scene at Main Street Garden Park. From noon to 8 p.m. on Saturday, June 16, visitors carouse amid hometown-favorite food trucks and live music by country-rock locals Grant Jones and The Pistol Grip Lassos. The two-hour craft-cocktail competition kicks off at 4 p.m. and features five competitions in which six local bartenders use Milagro tequila, Cinco vodka, Pink Pigeon rum, or to-be-determined gin and bourbon to create singular drinks. Throughout the day, local mixologist Brad Hensarling and his staff from The Usual will be on hand at a pop-up bar shaking up specialty cocktails. This Groupon is valid for admission only; all cocktails and food must be purchased onsite.
