Perhaps one the seeds of this site can be traced back to a quiet opening time at Bourbon & Branch when Jon schooled us on gin varieties. If you aren't so fortunate as to catch him without a line of other eager drinkers - slim chance of that - then he'll be happy to teach you about spirits over at The Beverage Academy.
If you've ever enjoyed a Revolver at Bourbon & Branch, you can thank Jon; that's his drink. If you're sipping some Martin Miller's gin, well, a nod in his direction for that as well; he's a brand specialist for them in San Francisco. If you're happily sampling the great drinking options in San Francisco, he's got a hand in that too as the President of the Northern California Chapter of the United States Bartenders Guild.
