The 24th annual Schooner Wharf Battle of the Bars raised $19,202 for local charities Southernmost Boys & Girls Club and the Bahama Village Music Program. The overall total is now $338,954 raised by this high-spirited charity event.

Twenty-five teams from Keys bars and restaurants were pumped up to win and waged a fierce competition. Excitement was high as the seven-person teams ran the obstacle course, poured and served a margarita, recycled bottles, rolled and tapped a keg, and drank beer.

Bourbon St. Pub’s “Bourbon Boozers” took home the championship title for the second year in a row, along with a trophy, gift certificates and bragging rights, with a final round time of 2 minutes, 5 seconds. Team “Sons of Hamarky” from Hog’s Breath captured second place, and third place went to Outback Steakhouse’s “Boozin’ Onions”.

Also for the second year in a row, The Deepest Pockets award (the team that contributes the most money) went to Salute! On the Beach’s “Beach Bums.” Catered Affairs of Key West’s “Wedding Warriors” was awarded second place, Danger Charters’ “Manscapers” took third place, and Dante’s “Horny Devils” took fourth.
