The Pennsylvania Licensed Beverage & Tavern Association Mixologist of the Month
September 2015: Beth Mattheu
Beth’s Bloody Mary
Salt, Pepper, and Lime Wedge
Beth Mattheu got her start in the industry at the age of 18 and when a neighbor opened a brew pub in 2000, she decided to try her hand at bartending. For the past seven years, however, Beth has been fortunate to work “at a unique, friendly, little bar, Pub 217.” She goes on to say that she enjoys coming to work because of all the great people, customers and fellow employees alike! What’s even better is that Beth gets to work with her daughter, Wanda and another mother/daughter duo, Steph and Sarah.
Beth believes that in order to be a good bartender, you have to care about your position and clientele. You have to “care enough to provide a welcoming, friendly environment, a good joke, and a kind ear when needed.” Beth is proud to say that Pub 217 has recently had a successful chili cook-off and pork BBQ cook-off with more plans for future events. You can visit Beth any Sunday through Wednesday evening at Pub 217 in Littlestown, PA!
