Who is Dale DeGroff?
And why is this guy so important in the bar world? "Mixologists" (especially the ones here in San Francisco) have this man to thank for making their cool title important behind the bar and in the bar industry.
DeGroff made bartenders cool and almost celebrity-like for foodies, food and drink critics and food and bar industry magazines.
I have King Cocktail to thank because he helped make it okay and perfectly acceptable to choose bartending as a viable career for whenever I decide to grow up.
Thanks Dale DeGroff. Now read why he is damn important HERE.
