Welcome to 5BAR… When we (Levi & Derrick) met we were sitting at a bar (big shocker) in Fort Collins, CO. Derrick walked into the bar solo and made eye contact with Levi. We had met before, so this was really the first time we chat. Some years later we discovered we had been to a few of the same events - and yes - we both have some fun stories from those events…

Years later we crash in the same hotel during a big coffee event (SCAA Seattle 2018). That’s really when we became friends. How do you capture all the stories and laughs? I don’t think its possible. We recorded a podcast together (Audio Cafe, episode 69 “Derrick Wessels is a Renaissance (Coffee) Man”), then we went out drinking way too late, way too late.

That’s the start of the story, come visit to hear all the rest.

The Brush Fire is our most aromatic cocktail yet. And very visually arresting.Two mists of Wild Turkey 101 and Everclear over a eucalyptus leaf, set ablaze.💨Thats when smells of smoke and eucalyptus along with sweetness from the bourbon fill the air. Dancing through the flame itself.We extinguish it with a sage flavored egg white whiskey sour.The sage and egg white create a great pairingWe have made a set of 3 for our guest and the smell was incredible, even with a mask on..@wildturkey 🥃
