It's back for the fourth year in a row— it's our annual Stone Fence Cider Cocktail Competition & Mitten Drive! Held this year at award-winning bar The Violet Hour, 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 Cornerstone Community Outreach. All ticket proceeds and donated winter accessories will benefit CCO.
Join us at The Violet Hour to try 11 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.
Thanks to our sponsors: KOVAL Distillery, Seasons Sparkling, Rare Tea Cellar Inc., and Chrome Industries.
