Jenn Ward

Co-Bar Manager, Longport Fish Company and USBG San Francisco Bay Area Chapter President

History can be viewed through any lens, but spirits are my favorite. Alcohol is all of the human story and condition, distilled into a quaffable form. I want people to be able to drink history, create new history, and enjoy themselves while doing it.

I have done quite a bit with my life, taking the experiences of each new position and industry with me to the next. I’ve worked in retail, banking, law, construction, tech, and food/beverage. What ties them all together is the ability to connect with people, solve problems, and have a great time while doing so.

Jenn is currently Co-Bar Manager, Longport Fish Company and USBG San Francisco Bay Area Chapter President. Founded in 1948, the United States Bartenders’ Guild®️ is a non-profit professional society of bartenders and other hospitality professionals uniting the hospitality community to advance professional bartending.
