Allison Hayes

Allison has worked behind every type of bar imaginable: high volume craft bars like Flying Squirrel, sports beer bars like Tremont Tavern, distilleries like Chattanooga Whiskey, and breweries like OddStory.  She’s a serial bartender and can do it all.  From creating that perfect cocktail to schooling you on whiskey and beer, she’s your lady to get the job done.  She also has killer dance moves.

Taylor Smith

Taylor has worked in the beverage industry his entire adult life.  His experience working as a buyer, manager, and self-proclaimed “Spirit Guide” at one of the premier stores in Chattanooga, Imbibe Wine & Spirits, allow him to help curate any home collection.  He is a purveyor of beer, wine, and spirits with the knowledge to back it.  He’s also a key member of the Tipplers for private events or large parties — able to sling drinks in any condition.  Not to mention he has long luscious blonde locks.
