A new feature at this years' "Bite of Bend" this weekend. Kelly Kerbs with the Northwest Spirits Show says there will be a special "Spirits Pavilion" during the “Bite". "We have a cocktail competition. We’re calling it the “Bartender's Brawl” and we're bringing in distillers from all over the northwest, up and down the west coast and even some from as far away as Brazil.  So pretty much all over the country. And you'll be able to sample all kinds of straight spirits and tiny mixed cocktails. And then of course there will be a couple of full bars inside the Spirits Pavilion." Kerbs says some of the top mixologists have already submitted their recipes; but will mix them during the competition, and the judges will make their selection. At stake for the top bartender is a trip to Mexico to visit world famous Casa Noble Tequila. The Bite of Bend is in downtown Bend this Saturday and Sunday.
