Agave Fest at Club Congress

Posted By on Wed, Apr 24, 2013 at 4:00 PM

The Fifth Annual Agave Fest is happening Friday, May 3 at Hotel Congress.

Over 40 tequilas, mezcals, sotols, and baconoras will be on hand for tasting as well as an agave cocktail throw-down contest by some of Tucson’s best bartenders (mixologists, if you are a hipster). Cocktails from the likes of Aaron Defeo of Casino Del Sol,
 Luke Anale of Penca,
 Cameron Fisher of Hotel Congress, 
Kwon of 47 Scott,
 Andrew Record of Playground,
 Ally Baron of La Cocina, 
Jon Herrara of Elliot’s on Congress 
and Danel Cole of Sky Bar will be fighting for the votes.

Tickets are $35 in advance, and that’s a bargain for what you get: Tastes of over 40 different agave spirits, taco and salsa bar from the Cup Café, souvenir Patron shot glass, cocktails from awesome bartenders, and the chance to vote for the best cocktail of the night.

Go here for all the details and to get tickets.
