Episode 26: “Reducing Orifice” Welcome to another episode of Bar Theory ladies & gents. This week we sit down with the man behind @kingfloyds Bitters, Mr Lawrence Batterton. In this episode we talk about, you guessed it...bitters. Based out of Marin, we learn about how he got started and the process that followed leading him up to getting his product launched. He talks about finding the right recipes, botanicals, the trial & error, and even goes over a couple different techniques one could use to make bitters. And deciding between using a dropper or a reducing orifice. Oh and rimming salts, cause that’s always fun to discuss. We also invite one of Lawrence’s team members and overall badass Ms. Cristina Hidalgo ( @cumuluscloudy ) to jump in and give us her perspective on things. So grab a @millerhighlife or a bitters & soda and join us for some useful information and mindfully inappropriate banter. And if you want to know more on how you can find @kingfloyds give them a follow or a google search so you can get some of these killer bitters. For reals, super good. Come by @marioandjohns if you want to taste test, we got you. Quick shoutout to @shake_an_bake_cocktails for introducing us to Lawrence. Thanks brother. #cheers . #goodtimebros #bartheory #podcast #podcasting #bartenderlife #barlife #industrylife #bartender #hospitality #community #sonomacounty #marin #kingfloyds #bitters #rimjobs #cocktails #reducingorifice #aromatic #marioandjohns #botanicals #digestive #livingthehighlife #local #bitterlife #drinkoutsideyourbox Photo cred: @cumuluscloudy

Episode 25: “Be the Light” As we reach the quarter ounce mark of Bar Theory, we have the pleasure of being joined by Tara Jasper, the boss lady behind @sipsong_spirits Just as Sipsong Spirits and Indira Gin are new to the scene (Gin released April 2018), we are new to getting to know each other. Though already feel we are going to have a great friendship. Tara’s enthusiasm and drive is so infectious, that you can’t help but feel inspired. And her passion, without a doubt, comes through in her gin. We learn and discuss Tara’s path of “geeking out” which eventually lead her to her passion. A path that includes Culinary School, nutrition, tea infusions, coffee extraction, shrubs, to making her own liqueurs...and getting her pilots license. She is also involved with as many charity events as she possible can, including our recent Charity Charity Event. A true believer in trying and learning as many things as possible til you find what you’re most passionate about, and empowering ones self is a testament to the meaning behind Sipsong- Follow your intuition, your inner wisdom. (In short) And what of the flower you see on her bottles of gin, the logo on her hats you ask? That too enriched with meaning... “Be the light” the light, the good, you want to see and put out there into the world. Whether times are tough or going great, Be the Light. We were left with much to ponder on, and much light in our hearts. So happy to have met and learned about this modern day Wonder Woman of sorts, And we hope you take in just as much as we did from Tara. Come by @marioandjohns and we’ll taste you on her Indira Gin (the one with the orange label, @cart00ndan favorite color ) Happy listening, and be well friends. #cheers . #goodtimebros #bartheory #podcast #sipsongspirits #indira #gin #drinklocal #sonomacounty #bartender #bartenderlife #industrylife #hospitality #community #bethelight #geekingout #tofreindship #wonderwoman #inspiration #ballofenergy #cocktails #podcasting #number3 #craft #craftspirits #flowerpower #pilot #podcastlife #followyourintuition #drinkoutsideyourbox Photo cred: @heywools

Can’t express enough gratitude/love/hugs/high fives etc to all those that helped us, the @goodtimebros help make this event possible. One million thank yous to you all that attended and participated. So blessed to be in such an amazing industry. Love this industry. Thank you to those closest to me that helped out and that have supported us since we started this silly journey. Love you all so much. And to our regulars/barleagues/friends that took your free time to help days before and during the event. You are our soul. Thank you. Thank you Nick and Micah. All the love and thank you to you two kids. Appreciate all you do for us. And to my dear sweet Franco, (@apollofranco ) None of this would be possible without you Baby Bird. I know how big a challenge this was for you, as it was for me, but you put all fears aside to help us make this happen. I’m so proud of you, and has been such a journey watching you grow, especially these past couple months. Don’t know what I’d do without you. I love you brother. I love you brother. Ok. That’s that.

Episode 24: “Cooking w/ Black Label” For the latest installment of Bar Theory, we mix it up by sitting down and talk with Jonathan Davis, ( @sutradavisjr ) one of our regulars @marioandjohns who has become our friend. This is something we have been waiting to do and will continue to do as to gain perspective from those on the other side of the stick. We pay visit to Jonathan at his place, aka the Bistro, and holy hospitality Batman. We are greeted with an In House spirits & cocktail menu, featuring a whiskey list better than most bars. Before we get talking, JD cooks us up a 3 course meal, accompanied with various cocktails and pours @fernetbranca Was truly something of@inspiration to receive this level of hospitality in return. Wow. When we turn on the mics we learn a little about Jonathon, and how he his love for whiskey began. A true connoisseur he is, with a vast knowledge of the spirit and a palate to match. This guy can pick whiskey out of a lineup like a champ. We talk a little about his Bourbon Trail experience, and his recent visit to Scotland and Ireland. And then of course we talk basketball, where JD & @cart00ndan try and educate (school) @apollofranco (who gives a big announcement) Finishing things off with our top 3 favorite Bourbons. ( pictured above ) This was such a great experience and podcast, Thank you Jonathan. Look forward to the next regular we have on. For it could be you 😉 #cheers . #goodtimebros #bartheory #podcast #bartender #industrylife #podcastlife #hospitality #community #barlife #bourbon #whiskey #regulars #bistro #blacklabel #marioandjohns #suitandtie #prince #whisky #cocktails #weneedtostepupourgame #bartenderlife #sonomacounty #podcasting #drinkoutsideyourbox Photo cred: @hkoliva

Episode 23: “No C**k Jokes” In this weeks episode of Bar Theory, we are blessed to be joined by @collinmcdonnell One of the head honchos behind our favorite brewery, @henhousebrewing (Located in Santa Rosa & Petaluma, Ca) As we sip on various styles of their deliciously crafted beer, we learn about Collins beginnings, to how Henhouse came about, the Hazy IPA craze, the craft brewery movement, conspiracy theories, and of course some off topic banter. This dude is hilarious, brilliant and has such a passion for beer, and the industry he’s in. Wish we could’ve talked longer with Collin, for there was so much to touch base on. Nonetheless, we know you’ll get a cluck or two out of this conversation. And def do yourself a solid and go visit these guys at either (or both) of their locations. You won’t be disappointed. #cheers . #goodtimebros #bartheory #podcast #henhouse #brewery #craftbeer #beer #sonomacounty #bigchicken #hospitality #industrylife #bartenderlife #barlife #beercocktails #drinklocal #beerlife #ipa #nocockjokesplease #conspiracytheory #hazyipa #saison #charitycharity #community #podcasting #cluckcluck #drinkoutsideyourbox Photo cred: @kyledekramer

Episode 22: “Stay Bartending” In this insightful episode of Bar Theory, we have the great pleasure of talking with Diana Martocchio, ( @dmart86 ) who is running the bar program over @brewstersbeergarden in Petaluma, Ca. Diana talks about her pathway in the hospitality industry, which finds her in SF, San Diego, to eventually joining us here in Sonoma County. There was so much to soak in and learn from D, that we really just listened and took it all in. And not just the usual nerding out, which we love to do, but getting to know her experiences, learning from great people, challenges being a woman in the industry, being around other strong, badass women in the industry, to what direction she wants to go into nowadays. Could literally talk with her for hours on end. We fell in love with D when we first met her @bearrepublic in Rohnert Park, and that love has only grown stronger. Such a dynamic and beautiful human. Pay her a visit @brewstersbeergarden and we’re sure you’ll see why we adore her so much. Enjoy the show everyone. #cheers (Please like, follow and comment on @iTunes & @spotify ) . #goodtimebros #bartheory #podcast #itunes #podcastlife #bartender #bartenderlife #industrylife #hospitality #barlife #cocktails #strongwomen #heybooboo #staybartending #visualaids #craftbartender #sonomacounty #community #cocktailculture #speedrack #sf #sandiego #followus #podcasters #drinkoutsideyourbox

“Lil Somethin’” is a little something I put together, drawing inspiration from my recent over-wearing of my Mellow Corn 🌽 shirt. (I have two in rotation) A shandy style of sorts if you will, as its still warm out in these parts, making for a truly chuggable experience. Mellow Corn / @stgeorgespirits Dry Rye Reposado Gin / @tempus_fugit_spirits Creme de Banane / @henhousebrewing IPA/ Lemon. #cheers . #bartender #goodtimebros #bartheory #podcast #sonomacounty #cocktails #craftcocktails #beercocktails #shandy #bartenderlife #industrylife #hospitality #mellowcorn #whiskey @heavenhilldistillery #gin #banana @hotalingandco #henhouse #brewery #ipa #littlesomething #chuggable #drinkpunch #thirsty #imbibegram #liqpic #barlife #sevenfiftydaily #barlife #drinkoutsideyourbox Ps- don’t forget to purchase your tickets to the @goodtimebros Charity, Charity Event September 24th @marioandjohns in Petaluma. @eventbrite link in my home page. 😘😘

A gorgeous cocktail mirroring the transition of seasons. Head to @marioandjohns and have yourself one... or three. #Repost @goodtimebros ・・・ “Act 3” is a collaboration that we pieced together, with the Fall season in mind. A slight variation of the “Act 2” but still a @fernetbranca based cocktail. (Coming in at 1oz) We’d say it’s pretty perfect for this time of year, being refreshing enough on the warm days, but will also warm you up on the chilly ones as well. Fernet Branca / @drinkeldorado Spiced Rum / @tempus_fugit_spirits Creme de Noyaux / @monarch_bitters Old Fashioned Syrup / @workhorserye Pumpkin Bitters / Challenge Coin garnish - optional Come ask @cart00ndan or @apollofranco for one next time you’re @marioandjohns #cheers .

Episode 18: “It’s Kane not Caine” In this weeks episode of Bar Theory, we pay a visit to one of the longest standing establishments in Santa Rosa, Ca, and an industry favorite, @ausiello5th We’re given @millerhighlife cans and sit with @mattkane4 who is the GM of the family operated Tavern (he married in 😉), and are also given Kane Margaritas ( his go to, a Margarita with a float of Aperol) Opening scene starts with a healthy dose of sports talk...which is then switched into a little of Matt’s history, the pet peeve of the incorrect spelling of his last name, the history of Ausiellos, the coming of spirits introduced to the Tavern, family life ( his father in law 😘), and how Ausiellos really likes to be recognized as a Neighborhood Tavern, and not a sports bar..which is def the place to be when watching the big game. Matt is full of energy, wit & smiles. And boy did we have fun trying to keep up with him. Learned a lot of fun facts during this chit chat. And hope you do too. #cheers . #goodtimebros #bartheory #podcast #followus #bartender #industrylife #ausiellos #5thstreet #santarosa #sonomacounty #bartenderlife #tavern #neighborhoodbar #sports #funfact #patiopimpin #rustic #community #hospitality #oaklandas #cocktails #margarita #aperol #podcastlife #itunes #spotify #radiovoice #theplacetobe #drinkoutsideyourbox
Calling this one “Bodega Sunset” (we think). A spin on a western sour with bourbon + velvet falernum + lime + turbinado simple syrup + grapefruit bitters. Honored to be batching cocktails for my sweet friend’s @larakena wedding at the bodega dunes beach in 2 weeks and having too much fun trying out recipes ✨🥃
The Mococo is delicious, pretty and sexy. Love this cocktail! Monarch Cherry Vanilla Bitters show beautifully. Head down to @marioandjohns and get yourself one or two. You’ll be happy. Thank you @cart00ndan for another exquisite creation. ・・・ For all you “Martinez” lovers... I invite you to come down to @marioandjohns and try this riff, “Mococo” featuring: @haymansgin Old Tom Gin / @carpanoantica / @krogstadaquavit / and @monarch_bitters Cherry Vanilla Bitters / Love A darling little sipper to unwind with. #cheers . #bartender #goodtimebros #bartheory #podcast #marioandjohns #petaluma #sonomacounty #oldtom #gin #aquavit #vermouth #bitters #elegance #liqpic #imbibegram #drinkpunch #cocktails #classics #craftcocktails #mococo #craftbartender #spiritforward #sevenfiftydaily #hospitality #barlife #industrylife #drinkoutsideyourbox #cherry #vanilla
Episode 17: “Shake & Bake” Welcome to another episode of Bar Theory. This week we sit down with the bearded wonder that is Chris Baker ( @shake_an_bake_cocktails ) currently killing the game at the freshly reopened @thetavernonfourth in San Rafael, Ca. As we crack open @millerhighlife & sip on some @fernetfrancisco we get into Chris’s chef days, growing up fast behind the stick and being humbled @whiskeytip learning under our beloved @whiskey_bandit_99 , to how his cocktail game has evolved, and how his membership with the @usbgsf has made him stronger. And of course...Pet Peeves. So crack ‘me if you got them, and enjoy the show. #cheers . #goodtimebros #bartheory #podcast #followus #bartender #barlife #bartenderlife #hospitality #industrylife #podcastlife #beards #cocktails #craftcocktails #shakenbake #craftbar #community #cheflife #magicman #champagneofbeers #fernet #usbgsf #wildturkey #sanrafael #marincounty #sonomacounty #cocktailgame #drinkoutsideyourbox Photo cred: @kyledekramer
