On this week’s episode, Chuck will be interviewing Joseph Stinchcomb who is a native of Oxford and head bartender at Saint Leo where he has helped grow the program from its inaugural launch in June of 2016. Joseph attended the University of Mississippi and studied exercise science. Joseph began his hospitality career at Oxford’s favorite Proud Larry’s as a dishwasher and prep cook. He quickly advanced and began waiting tables and managing, eventually finding his true passion in Bartending. In his five years at Saint Leo, Joseph contributed to the James Beard Foundation nominations for Best New Restaurant in 2016 and Outstanding Beverage Program in 2019. Joseph also served as the Southern Foodway Alliance’s Bartender in Residence in 2018, and currently serves as SFA Smith Fellow. In 2020, Joseph was selected to participate in the Sam Beal Fellowship program sponsored by Blackberry Farm. During this fellowship, Joseph trained at hospitality institutions such as French Landry, Post Rance Inn, Hotel Jerome, and Blackberry Farm. In 2021, Joseph opened Bar Muse, an intimate craft cocktail bar where he serves as co-owner and beverage director.

Stinchcomb has made a name for himself, honing his cocktail craft and sharing his creations both with folks who pull up a stool and the Saint Leo bar and across the country. So join Chuck this Monday as they discuss in detail Joseph’s accomplishments, cocktails, and the hospitality industry!
