About Brian 'Vince' Weber, Professional Bartender and Professional Audio Engineer
Brian's career in hospitality began at 14 when he washed dishes for $15/night. In the folowing years, he worked almost every posible position in a restaurant - line cook, server, bartender, manager and eventually Head Chef of a Manhattan restaurant by age 23.
Spontaneity and serendipity landed him in Hawaii where he spent a few months trying to figure out his future....then it was back to school in NYC for his second passion: audio production.
The financial crisis of 2008 shut down the recording studio where Brian worked. Undeterred he started Full Throttle Productions and returned to Professional Bartending after a long absence. Realizing there was a way to merge his two passions of Bartending and Audio Production, the Bartender Journey Podcast was born! Traveling to as many industry events as possible with microphone in hand, Brian has had many amazing experiences to share with the listeners of Bartender Journey!
Excitingly, Bartender Journey has partnered with Tales Of The Cocktail to produce a second podcast series called Tales of Tales. This show is produced exclusively for Tales 365 members.
Now, Brian Bartends at a Private Club, continues with Freelance Audio Production, as well as offering Cocktail Consultancy services.
