Australian Bartender’s 150th issue bash!

That’s right, Australian Bartender is sending out our 150th issue this June. It’s a huge milestone and to celebrate we’re teaming up with Cafe Pacifico to host the tequila party to end all parties.

We’ve loved Pacifico over the years and want to give them a fond farewell for their 15 years of service to the Aussie bar industry with this invite-only celebratory bash next Tuesday the 7th of May. It will be Pacifico’s last night and it promises to be huge!

April issue now available on iPad!

The April issue of Australian Bartender has gone live in the App Store. It’s a cracking issue — we’ve taken an old school approach to the drinks with old-fashioned illustrations, a How To on shrub and a masterclass in punch. We’ve also debuted our new Blind Tastings section — this month our panel sniffed, sipped and scored 28 of the country’s best craft beers.

Drinks with… Eddie Tirado

We’re in the habit these days of looking offshore for inspiration. And why not? There’s a host of bartending legends from America’s Dale DeGroff to England’s Salvatore Calabrese. What we often fail to do, however, is recognise talent in our own backyard. Eddie Tirado was and perhaps still is Australia’s most famous bartender.
