Colorado Springs, Colo. – September 12, 2019 – Today, Behind the Stick, Colorado’s first podcast containing interviews with leaders from inside the food and beverage hospitality industry has launched.

Created by Carlos Garcia bar manager at the acclaimed speakeasy Brooklyn’s on Boulder in downtown Colorado Springs, Behind the Stick, follows Garcia as he interviews bartenders, servers, managers, sales representatives, brand ambassadors, and other leaders who have valuable knowledge and experience to share. The podcast is intended to bring together everyone from industry beginners to seasoned veterans to create an atmosphere of learning and industry-empowerment.  Enjoying the podcast is free for everyone!

“We’ve had a tremendous amount of success sharing the vision and growth around Lee Spirits company and its tasking room Brooklyn’s on Boulder Street over the past year and with that story telling experience we decided it would be just as fun and informative to share the stories of industry colleagues whose job it is to keep their respected establishments moving and successful,” said Carlos Garcia “We have a full slate of interviews available for listeners now and have our sites set on more local, regional and national news makers joining us in the near future.”
