Beverage manager, Carlton, is an educator turned hospitality professional. His career began in Austin, working for James Beard Finalist Bryce Gilmore of Odd Duck / Barley Swine. Carlton moved to Portland in 2014 and got right to work as Bar Manager of Tasty n Sons and then ran the short-lived but amazing Americano (Oregonian’s Bar of the Year for 2016). When not trying to make guests and staff laugh and have a good time, Carlton is usually walking around the streets of Portland, picking herbs and fruit out of people’s yards, and cooking. Books are good too.
