Thirteen years ago, a young bartender in Northern California was struggling to learn the skills and techniques of craft bartending. He taught himself, using hundred-year-old books and years of trial and error. In 2012, he and his wife created a website that would teach these skills – so other bartenders could perfect their craft without years of practice behind the bar. That website is A Bar Above.com We are a bartending and craft cocktail site dedicated to helping bartenders and enthusiast learn the art of craft bartending. We believe every bartender deserves a great bar education and seek to be the ultimate resource for our industry and for readers like you!
