The prestigious five-day Beverage Alcohol Resource (BAR) Program is the world's most comprehensive distilled spirits educational curriculum. Once a year, 36 of the nation's top bartenders gather for what is lauded as the mixology equivalent to the Master Sommelier Exam.
St-Germain has supported the BAR Program since its inception and continues to provide scholarships for worthy bartenders. Of the 36 bartenders to take the exam every year, two are sponsored entirely by St-Germain.
The St-Germain scholarship covers the $3,500 tuition and $1,000 for travel. The applicant must be a professional bartender approved by St-Germain and the BAR committee — including industry heavyweights Doug Frost, Paul Pacult, David Wondrich, Andy Seymour, Steve Olson and Dale DeGroff.
Deadline August 21st.
