Greensboro friends, have you seen the November 21st issue of YES! Weekly? Our own barman, Lentz Ison, was named their Bartender of the Week! Check out a few key points from the issue below and make sure you pick up a copy of your own today.
The Hot Pour Bartender of the Week article was written by Natalie Garcia and is done Q&A style. Here are a few of our favorite parts of the Q&A.
Lentz Ison is the Bar Manager for Dram & Draught Greensboro. Lentz is 33 years old and is from Las Vegas, NV. He started bartending when he was 21 because the place where he was working was short staffed.
Lentz’s favorite drink to make is an Old Fashioned. “No thrills, you don’t need an elaborate plan to make a good Old Fashioned. Just whiskey, sugar, bitters, and orange zest. Perfect.”
Lentz’s favorite drink to drink is a Negroni. His birthday falls during Negroni Week every year at the beginning of June and he loves being able to support a good cause.
Our favorite answer Lentz gave was for the question “What do you enjoy about bartending?” Lentz said, “The people I meet and making sure those people have a great time. Also, I have a great team that I work with at Dram & Draught. A good team makes all the difference in the world.”
Come see Lentz at Dram & Draught in Greensboro – 300 West Gate City Blvd.
