Consumers and at-home bartenders who are not employed at an establishment are also encouraged to submit an online entry. HOWEVER, these entries will not be judged against the recipes from professional working bartenders at an establishment. Instead, consumer entries will be judged separately and against the below criteria based on the perceived qualities of the written recipes and essay/video entry. For the purposes of determining which recipes will be showcased at the semi-finals and finals, entries will be assigned to the closest applicable market, as determined by the sponsor.
The top 5 recipes (1 per market- Austin, Dallas, Ft. Worth, San Antonio and Houston) will be asked to attend their respective markets semi-final competition (2 complimentary tickets provided by Texas Monthly) where their cocktail will be served at the beer and wine bar during the competition. Each markets consumer entry winner will also be invited to attend the finals competition in Austin, TX where they will have the opportunity to make their cocktail in front of Garrison Brothers Distillery employees, industry professionals and the top 5 Bourbon Brawl bartenders (2 complimentary tickets and accommodations provided by Texas Monthly).
