Barista Guild of America Party
Sunday, May 1 @ 7:00 pm

After the US Barista Championship, USBC Brewers Cup, and US Cup Tasters have concluded join your fellow BGA Members and competition champions for the final night party you'll want to change your flight for! This years closing Barista Guild party takes place at Anvil Bar & Refuge, an amazing establishment that skillfully produces spirit-forward drinks and hard to score microbrews. We thought it was very fitting to partner with a venue that focuses on returning to the elegant simplicity of a past era when cocktails were fashioned with pride and bartending was a respected profession that took years of apprenticing to master. Join us for a final evening in Houston and an amazing service experience!
