Welcome to the Ultimate Bartender Championship

Forget everything you know about bartending competitions. The Ultimate Bartender Championship is like no other.

THE USBG, in partnership with Monkey Shoulder, is traveling the country searching for the best of the best. Competitors will participate in challenges designed to test the “Skills that Pay the Bills”, to prove proficiency in all aspects of what it takes to be a top bartender. Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a big-shot mixologist to partake; if you simply love the craft and being behind the stick, then you have what it takes to enter.

The Prizes

Win your local heat to claim bragging rights for your city plus a unique prize. Every score from each heat is entered into our national leaderboard, from which the strongest bartenders will advance to the Grand Finals. In the Finals, you will hone the next level skills needed to run your own bar. Win it all and a once-in-a-lifetime prize will be yours.
