Jeff Van Horne and Matt Boyle, Clever Barkeep

In 2016 Matthew Boyle and Jeffrey Van Horne found themselves in a rare situation. After spending 10 years focused on the craft of bartending and hospitality they both had a desire to give more back to the industry that has given them so much. Clever Barkeep was founded on the desire to bring finely crafted cocktails to larger audiences, unique places and into your home. The Clever Barkeep is Atlantic Canada’s first luxury beverage catering and comprehensive consulting service. It has always been the Clever Barkeep’s strongest belief that in order to grow this industry, knowledge and education must be shared in hopes of inspiring people to create better cocktails and to provide warmer hospitality to friends, neighbours and guests. Their vision is to redefine the bartending industry as an accredited professional career. @cleverbarkeep
