TORONTO — A talented Prime Pubs’ bartender is receiving the trip of a lifetime after winning the annual Prime Pubs Draught Master Competition.
Jeff Taylor won a four-day trip to Ireland and $2,000 in spending money after impressing judges with his Guinness pint-pouring skills and an entertaining Irish tale. He competed against 14 other hopefuls in the competition, which challenged bartending knowledge and customer service.
“Bartending is a real art and when it is done expertly the guest experience is truly memorable,” said Nathan Cameron, national beverage manager of the Vaughan, Ont.-based Cara Operations Ltd. “We host the annual Prime Pubs Draught Master competition to keep our bartenders at the top of their game. And with a four-day, educational trip to Ireland, including a day at St. James Gate Brewery and $2,000 in spending money as the prize, it is our way of rewarding our top bartender for all of his hard work and dedication.”
