Summer Sippin’ Roswell returns to celebrate the creative craft beverage-making skills of Roswell restaurants, cafés, breweries, and coffee shops from June 1 to July 31, 2018. This year’s competition includes 41 participants from around the city, all of which have created and will launch a unique alcoholic or non-alcoholic specialty drink not already featured on their menus.

During the two-month event, patrons will be able to rate each sip they try on the Summer Sippin’ event app. At the end of the event, based on the drink ratings, one alcoholic and one non-alcoholic drink will both be crowned “The Best Sip in Roswell 2018” in their respective categories.

“Our restaurant and hospitality industry continues to be one of the main economic drivers for the city,” said Steve Stroud, executive director of Roswell Inc. “Summer Sippin’ supports the variety of unique food and beverage destination options within Roswell by inviting both locals and visitors from all over the region to our city for this friendly summer competition.”
