April 7 is National Beer Day! Of course, there are many ways to celebrate, and now that it’s evening, it only makes sense to pop the top and enjoy one. But while you’re doing that, you might want to raise a glass to some of the best bartenders from pop culture. Don’t tell me you can’t think of any. You’ve seen Cheers, haven’t you?
As a relief pitcher for the Red Sox, Sam Malone (Ted Danson) may have been a footnote in baseball history. But as the owner/bartender of Cheers, he was nothing short of a hero. With his suave demeanor, instant rapport with his customers, and reputation as a ladies’ man, Sam simply embodied everything cool about being a bartender.
Oh, but there are plenty of others, most of them ready to listen to your troubles or even give out some advice. Read about the top twelve pop culture bartenders at Uproxx. Link contains autoplay video.
