Welcome to New Jersey's Toughest Mixology Competition
Supporting

Allied Beverage Group thanks you for your interest and participation in the 2020 Iron Shaker Competition. I’m sure you all have heard through the grapevine that the Iron Shaker has been postponed. We thank you for your patience as we have been reaching out to our vendors, supplier and media partners. Given the current climate and the rapidly changing news about the COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the planning committee of Iron Shaker knows it is in the interest of everyone’s safety to postpone our competition and corresponding events. The health and well being of everyone is of our utmost concern and we must do our part and be socially responsible at this trying time. Our intention is to host this event later this year, however, at this time the planning committee has not chosen new dates or venues.

 

As we all wait for this pandemic to be under control and for this time of uncertainty to be behind us, please remember the less fortunate people that are affected at this time. The Community FoodBank of New Jersey reminds us, “Many of our neighbors in need are already feeling the economic impact of COVID-19, while others will find themselves struggling perhaps for the first time. Closures of businesses and schools will affect low-income families and people with hourly wages, in particular. Millions of Americans are one missed paycheck away from needing assistance to make ends meet. Continued support is needed now more than ever.” In light of the new restrictions with on-premise establishments and town curfews, we know that the ‘Cocktails for a Cause’ portion of our competition is also postponed yet, Allied Beverage Group and the Iron Shaker Planning Committee has decided to make a contribution to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey now.

We will keep everyone informed and updated as the 2020 Iron Shaker Competition develops later this year. Thank you and stay safe and healthy.

 

Sincerely,

 

 The Iron Shaker Planning Committee

The Iron Shaker began in 2013 as a way to identify the top bartending talent in New Jersey while also promoting cocktail culture throughout the state. These competitions have drawn some of the most creative and knowledgeable bartenders to compete against each other and has garnered an abundance of media attention from both digital and print outlets.

In 2018, Iron Shaker partnered up with the Community FoodBank of New Jersey and proceeds from the final event were donated to the cause. Over $3,600 were raised for this organization!
