Bartending has existed since, well…. forever. For as long as people have been drinking, there have been people who have made, sourced, and poured those beverages into cups in front of people for money. On this special episode hosted by Greg Benson (bartender and host of Back Bar and The Speakeasy), we look at education for the bar industry. Greg welcomes Nonna Titulauri, a Diageo Bar Academy World Class Finalist who lives and works in San Francisco. She’s been behind bars since she was a 21 year old college student. They discuss why so many ‘bartender schools’ are so lacking and what resources are available to bartenders who are just starting out or looking to build skills. This episode was supported by Diageo Bar Academy.
