2018 Shake It Up Flair and Classic Finalists Announced!


Our 2018 Shake It Up Competitors have been selected!


After a full year of competing in many USBG Competitions, our Shake It Up Classic Competitors have been named. These bartenders have put in the work as some of our most active USBG Competitors which has led them to this opportunity to compete in Vegas at the Annual Shake it Up Cocktail Competition. In addition, our line up of Flair Competitors are some of the most entertaining and accomplished mixologists the US has to offer. 


First Place Winners will advance to the IBA World Cocktail Championship in Tallinn, Estonia (October 1-6).

Second Place Winners will advance to the IBA PanAmerican Cocktail Competition, in Cuba (August 25-31).

Classic Best Technical will advance to the Mattoni Grand Drink Competition in Prague, Czech Republic (June 15 - 17).


This is sure to make for an amazing Competition as the Best of the Best compete for a chance to be named the USBG National Champion!


In some unprecedented results of this year's judging, one competitor has gone down in history as the first Shake It Up finalist to be competing in both the Flair AND the Classic Competitions! Way to master ALL of the skills, Will Isaza
