The Australian Bartender Most Influential List is back again for 2013. Held every two years, this is the original list of the who’s who of the Australian bar industry. Voting is open now until midnight June 30th. The Most Influential List is based on your votes – we want you to tell us who you think has most influenced the bar industry in your eyes. Past winners have been influential Melbourne operator Vernon Chalker in 2009, and Sydney’s bar tsar Justin Hemmes in 2011.
You can vote for five people in order of the most influential and we will tally up these votes to come up with the Top 50. Your vote can be for any individual from all walks of the Australian bar industry from owners to designers, bartenders to brand managers, writers to trainers and anyone involved in the Australian industry.
The Top 50 Most Influential List will be published in the August issue of Australian Bartender, with the Top 10 to be announced at an exclusive invite-only industry bash held during Sydney Bar Week at Sweetheart’s Rooftop.
