Dan Hamm

“As the opening bartender of “1 Tippling Place” in center city Philadelphia, I built a rock-solid foundation in craft bartending and spirits knowledge. During my 3 years there I was an active competitor in local competitions and was awarded 3rd place in Hendrick’s first ever Philadelphia Boozy Bar crawl competition, 1st place in W/N W/N coffee’s latte/coffee cocktail throw down, was sent to Mexico as the winner of the Patron Aficionado Cocktail showcase (2015), 1st place in Monkey Shoulder’s “Ultimate Bartender Throwdown (2016) and competed nationally as “Philadelphia’s Most Imaginative Bartender” by Bombay Sapphire and GQ magazine (2014).

I am the beer cocktail specialist for Origlio beverage here in Philadelphia, Vice President of the Philadelphia Chapter of the United States Bartender’s Guild and I am an instructor/cocktail specialist for Drink Philly and The Drink Nation.

I currently am the Bar Manager at “A.Bar” in Rittenhouse square which was just voted #3 best bar in the Philadelphia by Foobooz and Philly Mag and I am the Founder/Owner of “Spirit Forward”, a craft bar catering and events company here in Philadelphia.”
