Alternatively you may recognise him by his collection of flower shirts (and his detailed knowledge of the origins of the different patterns on said shirts). Then again, you might recognise him from one of the dozens of bars he has graced over the years in his quest for knowledge and a great time. He also plays a mean honkytonk piano.
Hold onto your hats, Sydney Bar Week is about to blast into town! As well as all the brands on show at Drinks Fest at the OPT, there is also an amazing line-up of off-site events, including an amazing workshop at theloft for anyone who has ever though about opening their own bar…
Come on down to theloft tomorrow night to watch Keystone’s Group Cocktail Manager, Jason Williams, go head to head with Group Sommelier, Sarah Limacher. Who will be the most convincing? Chardonnay and a Merlot – or a Cobbler and a Punch?
Some might say that flavoured vodka has come, gone and long had its day – but after seeing some of the cocktail creations that theLoft team whipped up recently it’s obvious that a bartender’s heart can still beat for this flavoured tipple.
Today saw 94 of Australia’s top barkeeps sit a gruelling written exam to vie for a place in the Top 20 of the Bartender Magazine Bartender of the Year Competition sponsored by RESERVE.
