THE UNITED STATES BARTENDERS’ GUILD (USBG) Presents World Class Sponsored By Diageo crowned JONATHAN STANYARD of Seattle, Washington as the 2024 U.S. Bartender of the Year in its twelfth season. Hosted in Denver, Colorado, Stanyard was named champion following three days and five bartending challenges and craft cocktail showmanship. The competition brought together the country’s Top 30 Competitors from the USBG’s West, Central, and East regions to put their skills, senses, and agility to the test. Jonathan Stanyard ultimately took home the crown as he impressed judges with his cocktail creativity while demonstrating his passion and knowledge about the craft of bartending. After competing in several elimination rounds, Stanyard ultimately came out on top and was crowned champion after creating the Apples For Whales and Such Great Heights cocktails. Stanyard will now represent the U.S. at the Global Finals in Shanghai, China this September.
