Creator, Badass Bartender®

Social Entrepreneur, Deborah Brenner aims to inspire a community of women bartenders; aimed at filling a void, to unite, to be empowered, to support one another, to explore career opportunities and to network

The spouse of Jack, a restaurateur who owned and operated an Italian restaurant for 24 years in Piermont, NY, and more recently a bartender who lost his position at the height of the pandemic, Deborah is passionate about supporting hardworking hospitality professionals who are fundamental to the on-premise sector of the alcohol beverage industry.

Deborah and Jack know all too well the challenges and loss of community that has taken place in this sector, which is why Deborah knew now was the time to launch Badass Bartender®. Deborah coined the name back in 2018 with a vision to support and empower women behind the bar, but it wasn’t until Brittany Yeng, Co-Founder of Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey approached her seeking further ways to support bartenders, that it all clicked. Deborah shared her idea with Yeng and the two quickly got to work bringing Deborah’s vision to light.
