2019 Santa Maria Valley Craft Cocktail Contest

The 2019 Craft Cocktail Contest is the very first ever Santa Maria Valley cocktail contest. Each craft cocktail entered will represent the culture of each bar and restaurant and the culture of Santa Maria Valley. Every element will be handmade or tailored specifically to represent the heart and soul of each establishment. There are two drink categories – People’s Choice and Overall Winner.

People’s choice will be decided by guests who will vote for their favorite participating craft cocktail contestant. A panel of special guest judges, ranging from local media, foodie/beverage influencer and local VIPs will decide the overall winner.

Winners will be announced on last day of the 2019 Dine Out Santa Maria Style, January 27th, 2019.
