The Holiday Season is crazy as enough as it is without life throwing you a few curveballs here and there.
The Bartender Journey team regrets to announce that due to some life challenges this week, there will not be a Bartender Journey Podcast posted.
However, we know that you, our Bartender Journey friends, will understand this and look forward to posting an amazing episode for you next week!
We'd like to thank both those that attended BarCraft Live! with Stefan Giesbert of the German Cocktail Podcast earlier this week as well as those that couldn't make the live event, but requested the menu. If you're interested in receiving the Cocktail tasting menu including recipes, please send us a message via our Contact Us page.
We are excited to announce that our Let's Get Personal: Branding for Bartenders episode and accompanying guide was so well received that we are taking it on the road!
We'll be part of an industry event held by Bartender Journey Listener and Professional Bartender, Craig Schiedlo on Tuesday, January 24th at The Shepherd & The Knucklehead (Hoboken, NJ). The seminar will also feature a brief intro section on legal issues that may come up for you as a bartender, such as when you agree to bartend at a private event or should you decide to do some consulting.
For more information on the event and meeting us in person, please send a message via our Contact Us page.
