The Devour Phoenix Bartending Competition is a pre-event to the Devoured Culinary Classic. More info:

Grab your shakers and let the pouring commence. It’s time for the Seventh Annual Devour Phoenix Bartending Competition, presented by Devour Phoenix and Local First Arizona. To celebrate Phoenix’s cocktail culture, “Startenders” from Devour Phoenix restaurants armed with a selection of Arizona’s best locally distilled spirits from Arizona Distilling Co., 3 Amigos Tequila, and Three Wells Distilling Company will convene for a mix-off of epic proportions. Our bartenders will be up on stage shaking it to compete for recognition as Arizona Star Bartender.

This year's finalists:
Dustin Bolin of Melinda's Alley
Titus Fauntleroy of St Francis
Joshua James of The Clever Koi
Michael Liberatore of Citizen Public House
Tanner Lips of The Henry
Rob Moore of The Windsor
Jillian Newman of DeSoto Central Market
Robert Porter of The Thirsty Camel
Zach Smith of Welcome Diner
