Education Tracks

Bar & Beverage

Bar & Beverage

Your restaurant and bar doesn’t stop at the food! The Bar and Beverage track is designed to cover topics from what is currently hot in the industry, to bar design, bar staff, increasing profits, the perfect pour, and custom drink menus. No matter what kind of establishment you are, this track has something for you to brush up on the first area most customers see…the Bar!
 
Whether you are a wine bar, dive bar, beer bar, or a full bar, the Bar & Beverage track has something for you. We will cover topics such as Craft Brews and Artisan Beverages, creating signature cocktails, custom drink menus and more. Since bars are more than the beverages that they serve, this track will also cover areas such as bar design, bartender training, increasing profit, liability and more.
