A Twin Ports area tradition is returning once again this summer!

A charitable event to raise money for the fight against ALS while enjoying fantastic and creative bloody mary recipes is once again coming to the Northland as the 2024 Bloody Bash happens later this summer at Skyline Social & Games in Hermantown.

The 2024 Bloody Bash will be the third annual event where the public can sample and vote for their favorite bloody mary recipes and snits while raising money for Never Surrender Inc., which puts on a handful of annual events in the Northland each year to raise money in the fight against ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.

The 2024 Bloody Bash builds on the success of the first two years, where Northland bars and restaurants compete for your vote in the categories of best tasting and best presented bloody mary. Additionally, beer and cider makers from around the region will once again be looking for your vote in the "best beer snit/chaser" category.

Also continuing the tradition of fun live music during the event, The Northwoods Band will be returning again this year, putting on another high-energy, entertaining show during this year's Bloody Bash.

Organizers shared that while more bars and breweries might be added yet this summer, a number of them have already joined on for this year's event.
