Merit Badge offers craft cocktail & bar catering services for events in the Pacific Northwest ranging from intimate to grand. We work with clients from day one to create personalized and inspired drink menus. For us, each party is a new story with new challenges, and that’s how we like it.

Earnest: adj. Very enthusiastic. Synonyms: ardent, busy, devoted, diligent, eager, wholehearted, impassioned, industrious, keen, purposeful, and sincere.


It may sound a little unsophisticated, but we want to earn your love and loyalty, and through thoughtfully crafted drinks and honest, top-notch service, we think we can. We've read the maps and handbooks so you can sit back and enjoy the party while we enjoy getting another merit badge in awesomeness.
