February, 24th is National Bartender Day, and to celebrate we wanted to give a shoutout to some of the best bartenders in the Tri-States. Bartenders have been through a lot over the last 2 years since the COVID pandemic started and they deserve a day of appreciation for making Fridays at 5 pm more fun! We had soooo many great responses from you our listeners on which bartenders are the best we couldn't possibly fit them all into this article, so if you want to see all the recommendations check it out on our KICK-FM Facebook page.

Here are the names that kept coming up as we went through the comments, and therefore deserve a special shout-out on National Bartender Day.

-Chris at the Taproom in Quincy

-Todd at Jersey's in Camp Point

- Tessa at Finn's in Hannibal

-Allyson at the Wine Stoppe in Hannibal

-Aaron at Dugout Sports Bar in Monroe City

- Danny at Jay & Nancy's in Golden

-Heather at Sweetwater in Monroe City

Some of the other Bars that got a lot of comments about their overall great bartenders were Harrisons Pub in Quincy, North End in Quincy, and Barney's in Quincy. If you have a bartender who you think deserves a mega shoutout just comment away and we will always try to give them one, there are so many great bars and bartenders in the Tri-State area that you should take some time to go out and grab a drink soon, support local!

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
