Corbin Brown - Tales of the Cocktail / Portland Cocktail Week

Costa Mesa, CA


What did you learn through this experience?

Nola I learned SO MUCH! I learned way more detail on spirits manufacturing, and how to further my career in such a wide industry. Pdx I learned a lot about becoming professionally independent and more technical things about ownership and management. All from brilliant fun people!

What do you hope to do with this knowledge now?

I hope to further my career as a professional bartender, whether that be an ambassadorship, owner of a bar, or bar consultant.  

How has IAM been an impact-full part of connecting you to this experience?

Iam has not only supported me and opened up so many doors through the trips they have sponsored but also their kind words and introductions to many brilliant professionals I wouldn't have had the opportunity to meet or talk to. 

What are your thoughts on IAM as an organization dedicated to connecting artists to the things that will inspire them?

I think it is awesome and an honor to be involved with such a great organization. I remember when I first heard about iam it stood out as something exciting, giving people the opportunity to learn and grow in an environment that can be a little difficult if you don't have the right tools. I love they want everyone to be their best!
