For most people, the bartender is a public figure more important than a doctor or dentist. It's the only profession that can draft fluid prescriptions for good times and fill elixir into the cavities of sad times. The best bartenders understand the details that go into a perfect mix, the angles of a perfect pour, and the necessary bar-side manner that turns visitors into regulars. But it's not a natural talent. Like medicine or dentistry, bartending benefits from formal education under expert instruction. Unlike medicine or dentistry, bartending is actually a profitable public good and can be learned in a matter of weeks at Bartending Academy, Colorado's premier school of the mixology arts. In classrooms designed to mimic the buzz, clink, and glow of a real bar, students bask in the knowledge of board-certified instructors as they master more than 200 varieties of libations, and learn the ropes of keeping the customer satisfied. Then, The Bartending Academy finds a home for their talents with job-placement assistance.
