This is Katie Herrera...

When it comes to beer, Katie is queen in St. Louis. After starting her career behind the bar at Jordan's Big Ten pub in Madison WI, she moved to St. Louis in 2011 and joined the team at iTap. After iTap, she was the tasting room manager at acclaimed Side Project Cellar in Maplewood. A James Beard semi-finalist for best bar program in 2016, only validated what we already knew. That Katie is truly the Queen of Beer in St. Louis

Katie is now an account manager for local distributor Craft Republic, and contributes monthly to Sauce magazine. In the beginning of 2018, she offered to join the STL Barkeep team. All that we can say is, lucky us.  

As Director of Beer for STL Barkeep, Katie brings many skills to the table. With her leading the way, we now offer the following beer related services to our clients.

  • Staff training and menu development for Bars and Restaurants.
  • Educational events for the at home consumer.
  • Curation of beer focused events to help gain brand awareness.
