friends with benefits
We invite our industry friends to guest-bartend for a night alongside Sean Kenyon! They whip up a curated menu, and we donate the profits to the charity of our friend’s choice! Get it? Friends. Benefits.
Inspired by every aspect of the Spirit and Hospitality Industries, Brittany is a self-motivated industry professional with over ten years of hospitality experience in a spirit driven environment. Her drive and career path are rooted in integrity, quality, and passion and she bases her success on that of those around her. She has been fortunate enough to participate in both local and regional professional bartending competitions and was recognized as one of Zagat Denver’s 30 under 30 in 2015.
Alongside the professional growth gained from competing, Brittany has also worked hard in the pursuit of continuing education, participating in Bar Institute, Portland Cocktail Week, Camp Runamok, and Bar Smarts Live, as well as 4 USBG Regional Conferences. As the Vice President of the Colorado Bartender’s Guild, it is her goal to help other industry professionals in their pursuit of education and excellence as well as support Denver’s thriving community.
Brittany has worked with and learned from some of the best people in city at Z Cuisine, Green Russell, Tag, Baur’s, The Way Back, and B&GC, where she was also working as Denver’s St-Germain Ambassador. She recently stepped out from behind the bar in 2017 to pursue a full-time position as a Portfolio Specialist for Beam Suntory. It is with great humility and honor that she joins Sean Kenyon’s, ‘Friend’s with Benefits,’ and she can’t wait to get back behind the bar again, especially to be a part of such a special vision of what true “service” means.
The charity that she has chosen to work with is called, The Harm Reduction Action Center, who has committed itself to serving Colorado’s public health by working to reduce the harms associated with drug use. Since 2002, our organization has provided direct services that curb the spread of HIV, Hepatitis C, and accidental overdoses among people who inject drugs. To bolster their direct service efforts, the Harm Reduction Action Center also works closely with lawmakers, healthcare providers, law enforcement, and the general community towards a common vision of a healthy and safe Colorado.
