My name is Nick Ebersviller & I finished up the bartending program a couple weeks ago. I did my first bartending gig on Saturday night and made enough money to pay for my tuition and even made over $100 on top of that . This was a private wedding ceremony that I lined up through the Minnesota school of bartending. I would recommend this program to anyone. Mark and Phil and the crew offer one on one hands-on training.

The Minnesota School of Bartending was established in 1968 by Richard Lange and has been successfully training and placing bartenders ever since. Our experience training successful bartenders has earned us our great reputation. We are the largest and one of the most well-know bartending schools in North America. We are proud to still be the only bartending school to train all our students one-on-one, not in groups or classes. Don’t expect to learn bartending from a book, video, or an online course. Let the professionals at the Minnesota School of Bartending prepare you for the exciting world of bartending.

I finished the course months ago but I'm working at a taproom all thanks for this place! Bartending is very engaging, enriching and a whole lot better than most jobs I've had.

I knew nothing about liquor before my son and sister both graduated from MN school of bartending and encouraged me to do the same. 3 weeks later I graduated. This school was awesome with my busy schedule. You come and go as your schedules allows. I made back the tuition on my first event bartending. All the instructors were so knowledgeable and patient with me and my lack of liquor knowledge. They all showed a true passion for bartending and making sure I did things in a professional manner so that when I look for a job I have the confidence that I am doing it right. It's sad to say that I'm kind of sad the class is over, I really enjoyed the instructors and felt a connection with them all. Thanks Mark, Judy, Mitch, Martin, Kelsey and the one and only Phil. You guys are awesome and Mark did a great job finding you all as instructors.

I have been bartending for a couple of months now. After graduating from Minnesota School of Bartending I am far more confident than I ever have been. I learned drinks I've never heard of and worked hands on making them with great instructors in a real bar setting. The best part is right when you graduate they will help you find jobs that will fit your schedule and pay great! Honestly, I couldn't be happier.

This school is amazing and teaches a broad understanding of bartending. I learned so much and gained a lot of confidence. If I didn't do that, I would have spent many frustrated weeks training at a job that would have been difficult to get. Well worth the money and all the instructors are incredibly nice.

I've used the school several times to get bartenders and servers for events a my house. They've provided help for holiday parties to outdoor pool parties. Phillip always gets me great people who are professional, fun and knowledgeable. I don't know much about the school but I do know the staff they train does a great job.

I just finished my training and received my certificate today. Took me 8 days at roughly 4 hours per day. The owner is great, the employees that train you are great, and the atmosphere is conducive to learning what you need to know. It's also a family owned business that's been around almost a half century. You can come and go as you please so it's very low stress in terms of schedule. Staff correct your mistakes in a respectful manner and prepare you for an actual job while giving you job placement upon completion. There's a reason they have such a good rep. It's worth every penny and I would highly recommend it.

It is my privilege to write a five star review on behalf of the Minnesota School of Bartending. In short, it was a fantastic experience. I graduated last Thursday and have already made back nearly 90% of the tuition. I’ll break it down into the relevant components: 1) The curriculum: The way this course is designed is very intelligent. It is very hands on, building one skill at a time, and all of which are very practical. Before you know it, you’re free pouring drinks by memory to over 80 recipes with a drastically increased knowledge of different types of alcohols. Make no mistake about it, the curriculum is rigorous and intense. I was definitely challenged. I worked hard, but at the same time, it was not stressful. It’s just not that kind of environment, and you can work at your own pace. Prior to the course, my main way of learning something was to read about it. This isn’t really that kind of a program, so it may have been more challenging for me because of that. I’m not sure. That’s just speculation. But I do know, and I firmly believe, that is the type of skill that you have to learn by doing and not reading or watching someone else do it on the Internet. Here, you get the practical day-to-day experience. 2) The teachers: They are awesome. They are smart, knowledgeable, experienced, engaged, and attentive. You work at your own bar station, and they are there to supervise, and in some cases demonstrate--but always one one one. You will not be ignored, and you will be surprised by how much access you have to the teachers. I knew all of the teachers, liked them all, respected them all, and learned from them all. You could tell, also, that they really liked their job and industry and believed in what they were doing. 3) The family business: The real reason I think this school is so successful is because it’s a family business. Mr. Lange, the founder, passed away a few years ago. His son, Mark, now runs the business. It’s pretty touching to hear Mark pay tribute to his father when talking about the school. This school means something to him. It’s a real source of pride, and that’s obvious not just by what he says, but the way he carries himself and expects the teachers to carry themselves. They are super professional. This business is run with pride. They want to be great at what they do, and they are great. Mission accomplished. 4) Value: Right now, higher education is in a state of crisis. Still, I’m not against four year traditional colleges. In fact, I’m for them for some people. Is it a good value? I mean, that’s a debate with two convincing positions. I’m going to avoid choosing a side for the purposes of this review. What, though, cannot be disputed is that the value of this bartending school is a ridiculously good value. I mean, ridiculous. There is no way someone can say this school was not worth it. Like I said, within two days of graduation, I’d made back almost 90% of the tuition. Even if I retired from bartending at this very moment, which I’m not, I would’ve gotten my money’s worth. 5) It’s unique: Okay, technically this should have gone under the curriculum, but it’s so important that I wanted to highlight the unique nature of this program. As I understand it, this is the only bartending school program in the country that has its own work stations, where every student gets 100% hands on experience. If you look at the other reviews, it’s obvious that I’m not the only one who has had a positive experience at the Minnesota School of Bartending. Reading these reviews should be part of your due diligence when deciding if this is something you want to do. Even more importantly, though, you should drop in at the school during your free time. It doesn’t cost a cent to do that, and if you do, everything that I mentioned above will be demonstrated for you. You won’t even have to ask. It will just be happening, because that’s just the way the school runs.
