The grassroots and unbranded bartending competition, Reematch Beeyatch, is going global, with numerous events being held consecutively across the world to determine the quickest bartender on the planet.

Being pitched as the largest global cocktail event in history, more than 200 bartenders Europe, the US, and Australia (amongst other places) will be showing off their rapid-fire cocktail making skills with the aim of being crowned the sovereign of speed.

The premise and rules of Reematch Beeyatch are simple and straight forward. Bartenders pay $50 (or the local equivalent) to enter, and have to make nine drinks plus open a beer, in the fastest time possible, with the winner walking home with all the cash.

In Australia there will be Reematch Beeyatch contests held tonight (May 14); one in Melbourne at Collingwood World, one in Brisbane at Sky Room, one in Perth at 399 bar, and one in Sydney that will be held at the newly opened Pelicanos bar.

"Sydney’s finest will be going head to head with the world record holder, Luke Redington, who is getting pumped to defend his title and to set a new world record," said organiser, Blake Head from The Colada Club.
