AkaiMe804 ,

Grateful!

This series is invaluable for todays bartender. Working between a sports bar and a fine dining cocktail bar it has become very apparent that continuing education is critical for success. Eric’s passion for the craft comes through in cases and barrels every week ;) after many months of enjoyment I wanted to say thank you! From a consistently thirsty, forever hungry bartender in Upstate NY!
