Testimonials

John was amazing! He brought an incredible array of local, craft, and artisan products. He used them to make unbelievable cocktails, but they were also a real treat to drink straight. Most of us had never had anything like them. We can’t wait to have a repeat performance.
— Dave Powell (Partner, Reed Smith)
My guests were hanging on the edge of their seats. John’s presentation was informative and engaging and he presented ideas that none of us had ever heard of. Biodynamics? Vortexing water? Permaculture? Not topics I expected to learn about when talking about cocktails and spirits. I can’t say enough about how much fun we had while learning.
— Tony Wicks (VP Strategic Account Management for Lash Group)
I love that John is both creative and very hands-on with his work - often you get only one or the other. He puts ideas into motion- and he has a lot of ideas!
— Camper English (Cocktail Writer, Alcademics)

BIOGRAPHY

John Pomeroy (AlcoholOracle on Twitter/Tumblr/Facebook) is the epitome of balance – in life and in his cocktails.

Bitten by the hospitality bug in high school and continuing through college, he used his
skills to move ahead in the industry when others may have thrown in the towel – literally.

John went from dishwasher, to busser, to waiter before finding his stride at the
bar, where he worked as a bartender through college at the award-winning Montrio Restaurant
in Monterey, CA.  It wasn’t long before he was recruited to open Bernardus Lodge in Carmel Valley, where he had the opportunity to work with and learn from world-renowned chef Cal Stamenov and sommelier Mark Jensen, both formerly of the Highlands Inn in Carmel. He then went on to graduate school at the University of California at Santa Cruz, where he earned his Master’s in Education, as well as the credentials he needed to be a high school English teacher.

His passion, interest, and curious nature about food and spirits remained powerful influences for John. While developing his knack for identifying flavors on the palate, he excelled when it came to working with spirits – from distillation to the creation of cocktails. Today, he is able to blend his educational training and his passion by working as a spirits advocate and educator, consultant, brand ambassador and journalist.  His writing, cocktails and brand work have been featured in several magazines.

With his active participation in the United States Bartenders Guild (USBG), he has spent the past five years developing and solidifying relationships in the industry, affording him the opportunity to work with many of the most respected names in the business.  Additionally, he competed in (and won several) cocktail competitions both domestically and abroad.

His food and beverage knowledge and cocktail prowess adds credibility to many food and beverage operations around the globe. In addition to working closely with many of New York City’s and San Francisco Bay Area’s best cocktail programs, he has also consulted at Las Ranitas, an eco-resort in Tulum, Mexico, as well as several other venues around the United States.  His previous three years’ work with Purity Vodka as their N. American brand ambassador garnered him even more respect and credibility within the industry, as he regularly conducted training sessions in bars and restaurants and contributed to seminars at cocktail events the world over.  Currently, he works as a beverage consultant with Omnibibulous (all things drinkable) and focuses on local, organic, sustainable, and/or biodynamic beverages.  His portfolio of beverages and related tools is second to none and his most recent projects with Hub Oakland and Workshop SF exemplify that ethos perfectly. Stay tuned for news about a very exciting project that's in the works!
