iBar, the Interactive
Included with PBSO's certified bartender course, iBar creates a realistic, online practice bar you can use at home!
It is the only program designed to replace a traditional bartending school practice bar. iBar is compatible with
any computer that runs Adobe's free Flash Player, so there is nothing to download or install. Best of all, there
are no additional fees to use it when you enroll in our bartender training course!
that Make iBar a Great Training Tool
- iBar uses images of authentic
liquor bottles and equipment as found in a real bar. Every item can be picked-up, moved, turned and poured, etc.
- The back bar is set up just like
a real bar, with the premium alcohols set up on the shelf. That is where the term "top shelf" comes from.
- Lower priced alcohol is along
the front of the bar, called the speed rail, or just "rail", so a bartender can choose his alcohol quickly.
- The rail is set up with a system,
so you can quickly find the bottle, similar to a real bar.
- Refrigerated items go in either
the ice bin compartments or in the refrigerator. You will learn which items must be chilled, versus items that
can set out.
- The soda gun operation is similar
to bar usage.
- Shaking and straining drinks is
completed using the same methodology as a real bar.
- The ice bin is realistic, not
just a sink with ice in it (a sink with ice is against food safety regulations).
- Allows jigger pouring, which is
required by some bar owners, and free pouring skills (timed pours).
