2017 Marks 70 years since the first Bartenders’ Guild was found in America, in 1948 the first USA West Coast Chapter is initiated, as part of the English sister-organization, the UKBG (United Kingdom Bartenders Guild).
Since the inception of the American guild, it continued steadily to grow in stature and prestige both in the United States as well as throughout the world.
By September 1961, the UKBG – USA West Coast Chapter had grown extensively in size and was ready to become an independent organization. The California Bartender’s Guild (CBG) was born and in the same year the IBA (International Bartenders Association) granted the CBG a charter as a full affiliate.
In August 1971 the United States Bartenders’ Guild (USBG) was officially incorporated.
As of 1950, the first year that the American National Cocktail Competition was presented, this prestigious event took on yearly bases, delivering an impressive range of top dogs in bartending. Famous names include bartenders like José Ancona, Bobby Butago, Al Carillo, Johnny Durlesser (the actual inventor of the Margarita), Popo Galsini (the Tiki King), Leroy Sharon (the bartender behind the now famous Golden Dream Cocktail) and Pete Zamuto, amongst many others. Kurt Behringer, Westminster bartender at the HaPenny Inn, came up in 1966 with a cocktail called The Auburn and it netted him the Bartender of the Year title at the annual competition of the California Bartenders' Guild at Los Angeles. More than 850 persons watched soberly as Behringer mixed one ounce vodka, one-half ounce Creme de Cassis, one-half ounce Liquor Galliano and one-half ounce fresh orange juice to win the number one judges' award.
