American Bartenders School - Chelsea: $29 for a Two-Hour All About Beer Class at American Bartenders School ($99 Value)

In addition to crafting cocktails, aspiring bartenders must prove their conversational mettle in their final exam by talking a sphinx into revealing why it only speaks in riddles. Take an easier route to becoming a professional pourer with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a two-hour All About Beer class at American Bartenders School (a $99 value). Classes are currently scheduled for weekend evenings beginning Saturday, February 4. Start times vary and additional classes may be added (visit here for updated schedule information).

For decades, American Bartenders School has helped aspiring spirit spreaders develop steady hands, sure eyes for measurement, and an encyclopedic drink-formula knowledge. All About Beer classes are held in a realistic bar setting, with students learning the long history of beer production, the basic process of fermentation, and the ingredients that give beer its distinct flavor and prevent it from turning back into bread. Nascent connoisseurs also receive advice on food pairings and the etiquette of pouring and serving draughts, and they discuss the proper glassware and serving temperature to bring out each beer style’s hidden flavors. Sessions also delve into the burgeoning microbrew scene and the respective merits of bottles, draught brews, and sippy cups.

American Bartenders School

For decades, American Bartenders School has helped aspiring spirit spreaders to develop steady hands, sure eyes for measurement, and an encyclopedic drink-formula knowledge. All of the school's classes cover basic mixing, garnishing, layering, and glassware selection in a realistic bar setting, complete with animatronic bar regulars debating whether Woody Allen is currently the president of Azerbaijan. Students gain access to a book of recipes for shooters, including cosmos, lemon drops, and jelly beans; learn how to make frozen specialties and hot toddies; and discover how to cure hangovers and hiccups. For the 12-hour bartending-certification course, graduation sessions are held where the instructors offer helpful tips on how to get hired as a bartender, before returning home with a mixology certificate, professional resumé, and the ability to set up and stock their own home bars, all of which make a classy addition to living rooms, lounges, and butler traps.
