Bourbon Battle At The Trestle Inn

Here at Foobooz World HQ, we are big fans of drinking for a good cause. I mean, we’re big fans of drinking in general, but when our boozy natures can be put to the use of the ailing, the infirm or cute and fuzzy animals, all the better.

Thus do we offer this: Tickets are on sale right now for the 3rd annual Bourbon Battle at the Trestle Inn, which is being used as a fundraiser for PAWS, Philly’s largest no-kill animal shelter. The event is on Wednesday, March 25, it involves the consumption of several bourbon cocktails, and tickets will only run you $30 if you get them in advance. Meaning, soonish.

So what do you get for your hard-earned nickels? The chance to taste (and pass judgement on) four bourbon-based cocktails from four of the best bartenders in the city. This year’s event sees the return of last year’s champion, Jonny Sherlock from The Industry. And he’ll be battling against Neill Laughlin from Sassafras, Alison Hangen from Olde Bar and Katie Loeb, who’ll be stepping out from behind the long oak at The Trestle Inn to compete.

There’s also going to be snacks, a raffle, an auction and $20 from each ticket going to PAWS, but we’re pretty sure you’re more interested in the drinking, right? Right.
