25/03/2020 BSA is on schedule to happen on Aug 13. Registration closes on July 20.
We are empathetic with our entrants who submitted their spirits and were eager to see the results on June 15, however in order to do the competition in its true merits which is having national restaurant buyers, top bartenders from all parts of the USA, we decided it was best to postpone the event and do it in August.
The safety of our judges and our staff is the top priority and it is for everyone’s benefit to delay the competition by 3 months.
“Whilst following government advice and what’s happening in USA and especially the pace of new state protocols coming up, we spent the last couple of weeks speaking with partners to assess the impact the outbreak would have on our event and what measures we could put in place in order to mitigate risks and deliver a safe, successful event for all,” Sid Patel, CEO of Beverage Trade Network said.
