John Ash & Co. Restaurant Hires New Beverage Director

Posted on April 19, 2017

SANTA ROSA, Calif. (April 18, 2017)---Sonoma County’s beloved John Ash & Co. Restaurant announces the hiring of Sean Brosnihan as Beverage Director.

Brosnihan, who spent the last nine years working at Jordan Winery, is as much a fan of Sonoma County wines as he is an expert on them. He says he is excited to apply to John Ash & Co.’s beverage menu the restaurant’s own precedent for using fresh, seasonal and local ingredients. Of the wine list, Brosnihan says, “I love its depth and its Sonoma County-centric wines and spirits. It’s a neat opportunity for us to showcase everything our county has to offer.”

The Front Room Bar & Lounge, adjacent to the restaurant, is one of Sonoma County’s most popular happy hour destinations. Brosnihan plans to add a Prohibition Era-focus to the cocktail menu, to address an ever-growing interest in historic drinks. Brosnihan plans to design cocktails that will be a completely new experience for guests of The Front Room.
