WILLIAMSBURG, Mass. (WWLP) – Cocktails were poured for a good cause in Williamsburg Wednesday night.

The second annual Farm to Cocktail event was held at the Valley View Farm to support the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts.

Bartenders from several local establishments, including Theodore’s in Springfield, The Tunnel Bar in Northampton and Galaxy in Easthampton went head-to-head in a craft cocktail competition.

After attendees cast their votes, the top two bartenders were given two minutes to come up with a cocktail containing a surprise ingredient.

Andrew Morehouse of the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts told 22News, “All of these events are an opportunity to attract people, to have a fun time, and learn a little about our mission to feed our neighbors in need and lead the community to end hunger.”

The winner of Wednesday night’s competition received a $100 prize.
