  • Competition

    Third Annual Battle of the Brews

    The third annual Battle of the Brews coffee cocktail competition will take place Sacramento’s well-known cocktail lounge, Bottle and Barlow. Bartenders and baristas pair up to create a unique craft cocktail using coffee and spirits of their choice while adhering to competition guidelines. Eight duos, in true coffee competition style, creat their drinks on-site within a 5-minute preparation period. The drinks are then scored by a panel of three sensory judges on expression of coffee and spirits, skillset, presentation, aroma, taste, and creativity. Free to attend! Drink specials all night!
