1st Quarter Bartenders Brawl


It’s back…again! With COVID-19 Precautions, of course!
The 1st quarter approaches and we know a few competitors are hungry for that $500 CASH PRIZE.
If you are interested in participating in the brawl, email Hana at team@thevolsteadjax.com.
Come down and see the carnage as sixteen local bartenders are put head to head in a bracket-style, on the fly, pressure-filled, mixology battle to duke it out for the $500 cash and a chance to compete in the Final Tournament for the ultimate title of “Bartender’s Brawl Champion of 2021.”
As are all Volstead events, Bartenders Brawl is free to attend but is 21+ only.
If you were here for the last brawl you have a general idea of how things go down, but for you, newbies here are the competition basics:
16 competitors are put into a bracket system where they go head-to-head creating unique cocktails on the fly with the winner advancing to the next round.
Each round will begin with each bartender dropping a coin into our homemade Plinko board.
Each slot along the bottom corresponds with a different mystery ingredient that both bartenders must employ in their drink. (The amount of the secret ingredient will be up to the bartender, however, in the event of a “close call” the judges will be selecting the drink that they feel best utilizes the secret ingredients.)
Each round will incorporate a different spirit provided by our sponsors, with the winner using all four spirits. We not only allow but encourage you to bring our own ingredients and supplies and we’ll provide what we deem as the basics.
*COVID-19 guidelines will be put into place at all Volstead events. Face masks are required and social distancing is encouraged.*
