5th Annual Stone Fence Cider Cocktail Competition

January 20 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm EST

Our 5th year! It’s time for our annual Stone Fence Cider Cocktail Competition & Mitten Drive! Held this year at Big Star on North Clark Street, the Stone Fence Cider Cocktail Competition provides a platform for Chicago’s top bartenders to put their signature on the Stone Fence cocktail that will be evaluated by a selection of influential judges and one people’s choice vote.

The Stone Fence is said to be the oldest truly American cocktail, combining the American-born beverages bourbon and hard apple cider with just a hint of lemon zest. We are pleased to once again make this a charitable event, this year benefitting Sarah’s Circle. All proceeds and donated winter accessories will benefit Sarah’s Circle.

Join us at Big Star in Wrigleyville to try 10 of Chicago’s best bartenders’ riffs on the classic cider cocktail. Bring a warm weather accessory to donate, sample the cocktails, enjoy some cider and cast your vote.

Grab your tickets in advance, as this event sells out early each year. 100% of ticket proceeds will benefit Sarah’s Circle.

Competitors, judges and sponsors announced very soon!
