After months filled with Bartender Labs touring USBG chapters and our Alums sharing their best application tips, the time has come to announce our Regional Finalists!
The application process is no small task, to say the least, and we are always impressed by the creativity and authenticity, and caliber that come from the submissions entered. We hear, time and time again, that the process, no matter the outcome, challenges and pushes bartenders through a process that feels like a defeat in itself. That journey will continue to develop, unite, and challenge these sixty bartenders as they compete in the competition which will be hosted at three of our Regional Conferences. At the end of the Regional Finals, three finalists from each region will go on to compete at the National Finals! We are excited for the incredible experience ahead that will take the National Finalists Louisville, Kentucky. Of course, it wouldn't be complete without visiting the Bulleit Stitzel-Weller Distillery on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail which will host part of the Finals.
Congrats to the 2018 Regional Finalists
