InterContinental Stephen F. Austin
701 Congress Ave, Austin, TX 78701


Texas-based tastemakers have battled it out in the Semi-Finals to come to Austin for the Finals! They will compete for the chance to be named the #1 bartender in Texas, a barrel of bourbon, and $10,000. They’ll showcase their love of the Lone Star State by incorporating Garrison Brothers 2019 vintage, Small Batch bourbon into a unique concoction while battling it out with other top Texas mixologists.

Shakers will shake, bottles will spin and muddlers will muddle until only one competitor emerges, victorious. Come and support your local cocktail-crafting hero!

You will have access to cocktails from each of the finalists from their Hometown or Bourbon Takeover of Texas recipes as well as passed bites.

Donations are $20 and the ticket sales go to Good Bourbon for a Good Cause, a 501c3 public charity.
