These guys and gals at DrinkMaster are great. You tell them the job you'd like and they'll help you get it. Job postings are lame anyway. The best bars never advertise, you just have to show up with skills (just like they said).
Ask for the job. So I did. My manager has been very pleased with the skills I possessed because of my training at DrinkMaster.
I felt very prepared to interview because of the pre-game they taught me and how to tell the managers the stuff they needed to know about me. I'm working at Bertucci's in Newton and loving it.
Stop by and see me, I'm Roman. You'll be glad you did.
Oh lastly, I just signed up both my daughter and son to the DrinkMaster program. I just plunked down $600 dollars because it's the best investment I can make in helping my kids get ahead. Do what they tell you to do. It works.

I don't know how this school compares to others in Boston but I chose Drinkmasters because of the promises to help you get a job. Their database of jobs is pretty much the same as craigslist and after taking the catering class I still have not heard back from them about "applying" for a job with them. I graduated a few months ago and I am still not working. They talk a great talk but if you think they are going to get you a job they won't. The class is hands on and it was a lot of fun and I feel like I learned a lot but I still don't know because no one will hire with out previous experience.

Drinkmaster made this my best summer yet! And I just started my new job at Bar Louie with ANOTHER Drinkmaster grad. Come on down to see us. Thanks for teaching us how to do multiple drinks all at the same time. People can't believe we haven't bartended before. Melanie and I met at Red Robin and we really hit it off. You really got us ready for the bar by the methods of training and mad drink drills at class. You guys are the best. Anthony, Jeff, Jesse and Mike. You made all the difference and I recommend drinkmaster all the time.. Thank you!

My daughter absolutely rants and raves about this school. After every class she would go on and on about how much fun she had and how much she learned. She couldn't have been more delighted with all the help from the staff there.

The staff at the school was very supportive and helpful in getting her a job. I'm happy with that.

Despite spending all money on every course they offer.. you get nothing in return. They talk a good talk but give you nothing back!! All these promises of job placement.. bogus!! They don't hire you for their very seldom events. Should of gone to another place which shows you current drinks not old school !!!

So I just finished up the bartending program over at Drinkmaster, and I had to write SOMETHING to commend the school and they're awesome staff on really exceeding my expectations.

First off, if you haven't been to one of their locations and your considering the course, you should really stop by. The place feels like a real bar. It's modern, has a great energy, and the entire place is pristine.

I wasn't really sure of what to expect at first. I kinda figured the class would be lots of lecture and note taking, not at all the case! The class is EXTREMELY hands on! I was behind the bar learning tricks of the trade from day 1, and by day 4 I was whipping up cosmos and martinis like a pro. Over the course of 5 days, I was taught by 3 very different instructors, all bringing a different perspective and style to the table. The instructors very passionate about their craft. They definitely challenge you and keep you on your toes, but they're also very approachable and eager to assist if you feel lost (I tend to look lost even when I'm not).

Another thing I loved about the program is the fact that I was able to practice before and after class, as well as come back for refresher courses - for FREE - at any time. Its almost like having a membership in a way, which was totally unexpected!

Finally, the staff seems genuinely invested in helping me to find a job. The one-on-one job coaching (also unlimited) was truly impressive! I spent nearly an hour sitting down with one staff members who fine tuned my resume and coached me for my upcoming interviews - turns out, he is the school's owner! I was so impressed, and I would absolutely recommend this program to anyone interested in starting a new career. I can't wait to start working and putting my skills to use.

A BIG thank you to everyone at DrinkMaster! I'll be back for sure!

ps- they have the cutest office dog EVA! :)

I am giving Drink Master a 2-star rating because I have only had minimal interaction with them thus far, by phone and e-mail. I was very interested in taking a class with them, especially after reading so many reviews about how graduates got help finding jobs after finishing the course. But I did my research and dug deep to find as much info as I could and there is definitely someone planting reviews about Drink Master on here and other sites.

I know this because I came across a review I thought I had read before about someone supposedly getting 3 job offers and choosing one over the rest. I checked both sources and realized only the bar and city were changed but the review was the same, word for word. See for yourself.

If you search for ""drinkmaster bartending richard brickhouse"" in google and look at the review under the 2nd link, on Oct 15, 2010 a user named ""richard"" posts the same review that user ""ispitsparks"" posted here on 2/25/09, only the restaurants they both got jobs at are changed. Many of the 5 star reviews are posted consecutively on the same day - also very sketchy.

At this point, I don't know what Drink Master is really like because I haven't taken a class but I would warn anyone who is considering taking their class to check them out in person before making your decision because there is without a doubt some suspicious and dishonest reviews going on on their part.

Just finished up the DrinkMaster course. It's sooo much more than you can imagine. The teachers were so enthusiastic. To prove my point, I just got a job at Haru in Boston Come on down and see me.

Pros: Best Staff EVER

I see many people are posting reviews for DrinkMaster. Reviewing a company is not something I usually do. But I think I can safely speak for my fellow classmates that the DrinkMaster instructors went above and beyond for us. I just felt compelled to say something as they took such good care of me. It's the least I can do.

I was so impressed when i first walked into the door at DrinkMaster Bartending School. The atmosphere was set so much like an actual bar and when i was performing drink drills, I felt what its like being a real bartender. If you live in the Boston area and are looking to take bartending classes, go with the pros down at DrinkMaster.

I have to say I really enjoyed DrinkMaster's Bartending course...the environment is really fun and it is set up like a real bar. It is very hands on and very informative. The scheduling is super flexible too, and they really are there to help. The music is great, and the instructors were so encouraging. I am glad I took the course, and can't wait to start bartending in a real bar!

I loved Drinkmaster Bartending school the instructes are knowledgeable and fun and you learn so much in just a short amount of time. I was sad when my class was over because i wanted to go back again and again! The Catering 101 is also fun and easy and I didn't want to leave that class either!

I was so impressed with DrinkMaster Bartending School. At first i was nervous about bartending, but after graduating, i feel so comfortable! I enjoyed the authentic bar set up. I wouldnt have been able to get the same experience anywhere else. It is so great that they offer free refresher courses too. I've been going back everyweek just to master the details.

I just got hired at the Middlesex Lounge in Cambridge a week after I took the bartending classes. I had three job offers but decided to go with this one because their bar has a good reputaion. DrinkMaster really helped me pull my resume together and even tolled me with some good places to apply to. Thanks DrinkMaster!

DrinkMaster offers a great course. I loved the practical, hands-on experience and the fact that so much of it actually took place behind the bar. Feeling the way the bottles and glasses move behind the bar really helped me feel confident in my skill. Working with a variety of instructors was great too because I got to see different approaches so that I could figure out the best style and technique to use in my own experience. I would recommend this course to anyone who is serious about starting to bartend in Boston.

The bartending class at DrinkMaster was great! I was a little skeptical at first and was hoping I wouldn't feel like I was wasting my $$ but I couldn't be any more pleased with the outcome and all that I have learned. I wish there had been a little more time to learn about wine and beer, but overall I learned a ton about making drinks.

**I just completed the master bartending class at DrinkMaster Bartending School in Boston, and I learned so much more than I thought was possible in such little time.

Whether it is just for fun, or you really are looking to become a bartender, DrinkMaster is there to help no matter the case!!

My instructor Anthony made everyone feel relaxed and had us all rolling on the floor laughing but still kept the classes very professional. They really had the entire bar environment down from the lighting to the music. DrinkMaster is for sure the ?top-shelf? Bartending School in Boston.

I was a little nervous coming right out of this bartending course with no experience and expecting to land a job. However, the job coaching staff at DrinkMaster gave me so many interviewing tips and helped me make my beautiful resume. They were flexible about meeting too which was a plus since I?m a student at Suffolk. DrinkMaster is not only the best in Boston, but the best in New England!

I'm amazed how DrinkMaster can teach such an amazing course and still be so damn cheap. No complaints here! The tips I make at my job in a week can pay for half a class's enrolment fee. If that doesn't convince you to go here, I don't know what will.

Stepping behind the bar at DrinkMaster felt like I was on the job! It was great practice for when I got my first bartending job not too long after. What these guys teach you will no doubt land you a bartending job in Boston. Two of my friends just signed up for classes the other day.

When I called DrinkMaster I asked a lot of questions. I felt like I was being sold. They spent more time talking about other schools than their own. So I visited them and still felt the same way so I also looked into and visited a few others. I was much more impressed with the ""other school"" and I enrolled there instead.

I graduated from DrinkMasters bartending school a couple of months ago. I was nervous to start classes because I had no previous experience at bartending. However, my anxiety quickly went away after only a few minutes of being in the class. The instructors were so approachable and treated everyone with respect. I thought it was good to be taught by 3 different instructors because it helped me gain more insight through a variety of suggestions, and ideas. The course was a lot of fun, and at the same time, I have learned so much. I definitely recommend this course!

I just completed the course at DrinkMaster bartending school and I had a great time! It was awesome to actually get behind the bar and get an authentic bartending experience.

I'm a teacher, and I am looking to bartend on the side. I visited another bartending school and immediately could see the difference in ""teaching"". Drinkmaster instructors are ""teachers"" as well as great barenders. I want to thank them for being so patient with me but also, challenging me to perform skills I never thought I could. I love martinis', and now I can make them 3 at time.

I've never written one of these, but drinkmaster deserves one. I graduated drinkmaster a little over a year ago and everything has been amazing since. I felt like I was already bartending for years when I left their course. They got me my first couple of jobs where I learned what it was like with actual customers. After that I started getting jobs at bigger events and even private parties. I have worked at bars, clubs, weddings, graduations etc. Their staff is always there if you need advice on getting a job or you just need to practice for a little bit. Thanks to DrinkMaster I am now making in a 4 hour shift of bartending more than I make in a week at my 9-5! I highly recommend this school for anybody looking for a warm staff, great learning environment, AND LOOKING TO HAVE FUN!

I'm new to Boston and I needed a job asap. I've always wanted to bartend, so I figured why not just go for it and enrolled in their weeknight classes. Upon arriving I was greated at the door by two extremely friendly staff members, and one adorable puppy (the school mascot).

So many positive things to say about the staff at DrinkMaster. I received such a solid foundation at the school. My bartending co-workers couldn't believe that I had learned as much as I did. The bottom line is the committment of the Drinkmaster staff to their students is unsurpassed. After I graduated they rewrote my resume and coached me on exactly how to get a job. Every step of the way they gave me and from what I saw all of my classmates the support we all needed. They know what topics are important to cover in order to land a job. I am very grateful to Jeff, Jesse, Anthony, Jason and Fiona. Without them I wouldn't be making over $300 cash a night bartending.

I took a course here a few months ago and I thought it was okay, but not amazing. I barely learned anything about wines and beers, which is VERY important if you are going to work in a restaurant (most bars in Boston serve food also, unlike in NYC). They did a good job of teaching the common cocktails that you need to know. I think there could have been some aspects of the course to make it stronger. First, they didn't ask for feedback after the course to see what could have been improved. That is not a good sign. Second, as I mentioned, they spent way too little time on wines. Learning regions, varietals and pairing is really key in my opinion. It's not just about how to make Lemon Drops for a bunch of drunk college kids. Boston is a pretty high-end market and even sports bars take their food pretty seriously -- which means they want folks that know wines and beers. There could have also been more information about working as a bartender in a restaurant, to give students new to the industry an understanding of your overall responsibilities. Another key improvement - and I have no idea if other schools offer this - is to practice taking and completing orders using a live Point of Sale (POS) system. Lastly, I think they gave very little information on breaking into the industry. This is strategic, and let me tell you why: very few places will hire someone that has done ""the course"" but has not experience as a bartender. While this my sound discouraging, it is true most of the time. You're probably not going to get that first bartending job if you don't work up from a server/barback, or know an owner/manager that can hook you up. In conclusion, I would recommend two things if you are looking at bartending schools. One - research schools well and find one that takes a serious approach to more than just cocktails. Two - know before signing up for any course that you probably won't get hired to a bar just because you have the course under your belt.

I took a course here a few months ago and I thought it was okay, but not amazing. I barely learned anything about wines and beers, which is VERY important if you are going to work in a restaurant (most bars in Boston serve food also, unlike in NYC). They did a good job of teaching the common cocktails that you need to know. I think there could have been some aspects of the course to make it stronger. First, they didn't ask for feedback after the course to see what could have been improved. That is not a good sign. Second, as I mentioned, they spent way too little time on wines. Learning regions, varietals and pairing is really key in my opinion. It's not just about how to make Lemon Drops for a bunch of drunk college kids. Boston is a pretty high-end market and even sports bars take their food pretty seriously -- which means they want folks that know wines and beers. There could have also been more information about working as a bartender in a restaurant, to give students new to the industry an understanding of your overall responsibilities. Another key improvement - and I have no idea if other schools offer this - is to practice taking and completing orders using a live Point of Sale (POS) system. Lastly, I think they gave very little information on breaking into the industry.

Well I got a deal! I?ve already made back in bartending tips what the course cost me! Plus, I actually really enjoyed it. Taking DrinkMaster was one of the best decisions I've made.

The whole program they have over there is impressive. They give us step by step instructions that are organized and easy to follow and the smaller class size means we each get much more attention. Tomorrows my last day at DrinkMaster and then I get to go out and put my new bartending expertise to use. I can't wait.

Pros: very convenient location and impressive school as a whole

I absolutely got the most bangfor my buck. I did my research comparing bartending schools in the Boston area before picking one and DrinkMaster's rate was excellent, especially when considering how much more class time you get. Since my class I?ve also been able to go back and practice several times for free.

Before I went to DrinkMaster I didn?t have a clue on how to make a drink. I was amazed at how quickly I learned this new trade. The bartending tips they offered me in how to remember different drink recipes really worked. They've helped me numerous times in the bar I currently work at.

I think I can safely speak for everyone who?s gone to DrinkMaster when I say that the school was well worth the cost and the hours spent in class. I would be leaving a large tip if I were a customer at any of my instructor?s bars. They beat my college professors hands down. I give them an A+.

I thought it was so generous of them to take the time to offer a free introductory class. It was a really great opportunity for me to get a taste of what the real bartending experience is like. I?m really excited to start a class at this school.
