Tough Tournament Set To Decide The 2012 “Bartender Of The Year” At The Keefer Bar

May 22, 2012.

by Andrew Morrison | Scout has joined forces with the barkeeps who brought you last year’s Bar-ate Kid competition to put together a gruelling tournament celebrating the best of BC bartending. And don’t sweat the exam. It’s multiple choice. If you know booze well enough, you won’t embarrass yourself. But as the poster above notes, only the 16 best scores will advance to the final, which will be a raucous affair to remember. To give you an idea as to what to expect, take a look at what went down at the Bar-ate Kid last year (spoiler: Josh Pape of The Diamond kicked ass). It’s the same venue, and I would imagine some of the same bartenders will make it to the final, so overall it will be a similar afternoon, only with the occasional blindfold, badger, and whip.

So sign up fast and spread the word, BC barkeeps, ’cause it’s time to put up your dukes. You have until midnight on June 3rd to register!

UPDATE: edited to keep my sometimes embarrassing inability to communicate properly to a minimum.
