Is the Beverage Academy an actual bartending school?
No. The Beverage Academy consists of a series of interactive classes that instructs absolutely anyone of legal age on the world of fine distilled spirits as well as the intricate details and techniques of competently mixing cocktails with these spirits. Though the classes are created for anyone's enhancement of their spirits and cocktail knowledge, many professional bartenders and food & beverage industry people have reported the classes to be very rewarding (and a lot of fun!).

Where do the Beverage Academy Classes take place?
Onsite Beverage Academy Classes take place in the Wilson and Wilson Bar at Bourbon & Branch. The Wilson and Wilson setting is a very comfortable space for dedicated class instruction. Complete bar-keeping tools, products and equipment are provided at the Wilson and Wilson. Onsite classes have a maximum of 23 participants.
