The Mixology Talk Podcast, Episode One Hundred One
Listen in as we talk about his journey and learn a few things we can do in our bars to be a little “greener”
In today’s Episode…
We’re chatting with John Pomeroy, Jr. – an urban farmer and F&B consultant based in Oakland, California.
We’re discussing how he started in the hospitality industry as a dishwasher and worked his way up – eventually getting his Master’s degree from UC Santa Cruz and becoming a consultant with a specialty in sustainability.
Listen in to hear some great tips for bartenders thinking about going out on their own – and some thoughts for folks interested in making their bars a bit more sustainable.
Stuff we Mentioned:
- Crooked City Ciders
- 2 Mile Wines
- Oakland Spirits Company
- Hodo Soy
- Denny Bar Company
- Cidercraft Magazine
Thanks for Listening!
I hope you enjoyed this interview as much as I did! I learned a lot about entrepreneurship and “working your way up” – and I definitely learned a lot about sustainability behind bars. Hopefully you learned a thing or two you can implement at your bar as well.
