$99 for Two-Day Bartending Course ($295 Value)

The two-day course includes eight hours of lecture per day, unlimited time at the practice bar, and unlimited refresher courses. When students complete the test-free course and earn their certification, the school aids with job placement in area bars and restaurants. Classes can run Tuesday–Wednesday, Saturday–Sunday, or on two consecutive Saturdays.

Bar Academy 101

Bar Academy 101 emphasizes hands-on learning during courses at a 24/7 model bar, where students can spend unlimited hours practicing the two main skills of bartending: mixing drinks and pouring them into patrons’ outstretched hands. Robert shares the skills he has learned in the field at the school’s glossy wooden bar stations, which feature tools and bottles much like those found in typical watering holes. This hands-on learning ensures that pupils are prepared for job placement at the end of courses. Robert meets one-on-one with graduates, matching them with openings in local bars and restaurants.

It was a great experience. The host was super friendly and made a great effort to talk with every guest - not easy, with 6 couples doing 3 different kinds of tastings. I'd love to see him use his skill and knowledge to hold tastings that are a bit more in depth (maybe focusing on just one item, instead of multiple , as that might facilitate more discussion with host and among guest couples) and have wider offerings. We would love to return for another tasting!

I did the craft beer tasting. Rob was AWESOME. I learned a lot and tried new things. He's got a heavy pour, making it much more than a taste! He made me feel really comfortable giving us time to just hang out with a beer for a while before we got the next one. There were a few other groups doing different events, and it was nice to have our own table while he poured away. Definitely recommend !
