At one time, he held the world record for most cocktails mixed in an hour (253). Last year, he was the personal bartender to Kid Rock on his "Best Night Ever" tour. This week, Bobby "G" Gleason, master mixologist for Beam Inc., is in town for cocktail classes and whiskey dinners. But he won't just be promoting whiskey: in addition to Jim Beam, the Beam Inc. portfolio includes a wide variety of spirits, from Laphroaig Scotch to Cruzan rum. The events:
