Hip Sip Competition: Battle of the Modern Bartender

November 09, 2023
Culinary Innovation Theater
Battle of the Modern Bartender Competition comes to life at the Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo. Our creative bartender contestants battle it out to see who has the best rye whiskey cocktail. This year's competition is sponsored by Savage & Cooke Distillery with the bartenders using Lip Service Rye Whiskey in their creations. Bartenders compete live on Center Stage for a chance to win a trip of a lifetime. Chosen finalists will battle in this exciting competition for a chance to win -- a trip to the Savage & Cooke Distillery, commemorative trophy and bragging rights! The trip will include airfare, 2-night accommodations in Napa, a tour of the distillery and a meet & greet with the master distiller.
