The Bartender’s Field Manual is intended to be a reference manual that you’ll be ‘referring‘ throughout your career so it’s important for it to be quick and easy to navigate. The book comes with a comprehensive and clickable table of contents so you can quickly find exactly what you’re looking for.
HOW TO WRITE AN IRRESISTIBLE RESUME
You have less than 30 seconds to impress the bar manager with your resume. Needless to say, it’s important that you have a good one, especially if you have no experience. As a former bar manager, I’ve seen my fair share of resumes so I know exactly what to include to help your resume stand out in a sea of the noise.
A JOB HUNTING SYSTEM THAT WORKS
When you have no experience, you need a job hunting system that works so you can get paid and practice the skills in a real-world setting. The system detailed in the book is a step-by-step process that anyone can follow and it’s so effective that the last time I used it, 8/10 bars I applied for brought me in for an interview.

Spirits vs liquor? Liquors vs liqueurs? Where does beer come from? What’s a Pinot Noir? There’s no doubt the theory of alcohol can be confusing but for us bartenders, it’s important to learn. The Field Manual answers all your questions on alcohol so you can work with it and serve it like a pro.
