The Baltimore Bartenders’ Guild is a collection of Baltimore-local, like-minded bar professionals with one goal: to raise the bar by bringing a new level of classic and contemporary cocktails to the city of Baltimore, while providing guests with the best quality of service.
Join the members of the Baltimore Bartenders’ Guild for our annual fundraiser "Ryes Up", benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Maryland, and featuring our esteemed whiskey sponsors: Heaven Hill's Rittenhouse Rye, Sagamore Spirits Rye, Wild Turkey Rye and our long time partner, 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, local craft beer, and other rye whiskies at the tasting tables.
This year, we are selling 30 VIP tickets, giving ticketholders the ultimate whiskey experience: an intimate whiskey tasting seminar sponsored by Beam Suntory (beginning at 4pm), a swag bag, and early access to the event itself. These tickets are not available with the Industry discount, and they are very limited; don't delay!
As usual, witness a spirited cocktail competition between Baltimore's best bartenders to determine who has created this year's tastiest rye whiskey cocktail. Join in and vote on the "People Choice" for both cocktail and food.
Come thirsty and leave happy! Tickets are available for purchase here.
