Bartending enthusiasts rejoice! BarSmarts Wired, the online bartender training program, will be FREE throughout May and June! And, yes, it is halfway through May already, but there is still plenty of time to participate – and you don’t want to pass up on this opportunity!
Cocktail Culture has spoken plenty of BarSmarts programs (just click on the tag “BarSmarts” to read some of our other coverage), so here’s your nickel-and-dimed version: Pernod Ricard USA and Beverage Alcohol Resource, LLC, continue to team together to present the BarSmarts Wired and Advanced courses. Under the tutelage of the likes of Dale DeGroff, Paul Pacault, David Wondrich, Steve Olson, and Andy Seymour, bartenders in the program cover topics such as recipes, spirits tasting notes and tips, and alcohol history. But that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Much of the program also focuses on cocktail technique and best service practices for those in the bartending profession.
There are still more perks! Signing up for Wired will
earn you a complimentary messenger bag and complete set of professional bar tools (as pictured above) give you access to an online plethora of resources, including a workbook, video library, 4 tests and a final exam. And did I mention it’s completely FREE? Dually for you cocktail enthusiasts, Wired is an exciting program in that you get to learn and practice the craft from the comfort of your own home and on your own schedule. It doesn’t get much more practical than this!
If you have more questions about BarSmarts Wired or Advanced, I encourage you to visit the FAQ page or feel free to leave your questions in the comments or via email, and our very own BarSmarts graduate (Miss Stephanie Jerzy) will be happy to help you out. As my initiation to the Cocktail Culture team, I will be signing up to try my hand at the program as well, and am very excited to get started, especially since it’s free!
Hope you all will join me in signing up for these amazing courses, for no cost at all, and good luck to all who participate!
