Stuart Humphries is a Houston native. One month into working as a food runner at Chris Shepherd's Underbelly— one month into working in the restaurant industry entirely, Humphries was noticed by Bobby Heugel who offered him a job tending bar down the road. At 24 years old, he began training to bartend at the highest level at one of the best bars in Houston, Anvil Bar & Refuge. Upon exiting Anvil, Humphries worked as the bar manager at The Pass & Provisions for the last 3 years. He was the head bartender at Tongue Cut Sparrow, Bobby Huegel's formal cocktail bar and event space and most recently, the bar manager of new Houston pizza and wine joint, Rosie Cannonball.
