Jim is a true professional in every sense of the word. From the first email, to our in-person meeting to discuss the specifics, to the very end of that night at our wedding reception, he went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly. His communication, experience, and... Read More positive attitude was greatly appreciated throughout the entire process, and it was SO nice knowing we didn’t have to worry about the beverage service piece of the party at all. We've also received a ton of compliments from our guests regarding the speed and attentiveness he and his co-bartender provided at our reception, which of course is fantastic to hear. We will definitely use Jim and Professional Beverage Service for any future party needs and will be recommending him to all of our family and friends for their party needs, too. Thanks, Jim!!

Jim and his staff helped at our 5-1-15 wedding at Byron Colby Barn. We chose ProBev because they are a preferred vendor with the barn and already licensed/familiar with the space. That turned out to be a huge help as they just kinda did their thing! We provided our own alcohol... Read More and cups and they made it all work smoothly. The guests loved their fun attitude and the mixed drinks were perfect. As the bride, Jim even personally handed me my first drink at cocktail hour! Such fun for our reception and great professional service from them. Jim was helpful through the whole process especially in my case planning long-distance, helping estimate how much we would need based on 90 guests, drink recommendations, price flexibility, and even suggestions about the space such as doing cocktail hour outside. I would recommend Professional Beverage Service for your wedding!

Jim was great!

We hired this bartending service to serve our Byron Colby barn reception. Jim and Amin, the caterer, work together all the time and had good communication. Jim brought reserves just in case we ran out of alcohol, WHICH we DID! and he was on top of things. We highly recommend... Read More them and their team!
