Jeff Beachbum Berry (Tiki Legend & Historian)

One of Imbibe magazine’s “25 Most Influential Cocktail Personalities of the Past Century,” Jeff “Beachbum” Berry is the author of six books on vintage Tiki drinks and cuisine, which Los Angeles magazine dubbed “the keys to the tropical kingdom.” Esquire calls Jeff “one of the instigators of the cocktail revolution” and Food & Wine “one of the world’s leading rum experts,” while the New York Times cites him as “the Indiana Jones of Tiki drinks” and the Los Angeles Times as “A hybrid of street-smart gumshoe, anthropologist and mixologist.” Jeff’s been profiled in the Washington Post, USA Today and Wine Enthusiast magazine; he’s also been featured on PBS Television, National Public Radio and Martha Stewart Living Radio. With Martin Doudoroff, Jeff co-created Total Tiki for iPad and iPhone, a drink recipe app which Macworld magazine calls “beautifully rendered and, thanks to Berry’s tireless reporting, impeccably sourced.” Jeff’s also co-created a line of Tiki barware with Cocktail Kingdom, which Imbibe hails as “especially notable because it revives old styles of essential glassware that were previously almost impossible to find.” Jeff’s original cocktail recipes have been printed in publications around the world, from Bon Appetit and Fine Cooking magazines to over 30 international recipe books, including the venerable Mr. Boston Official Bartenders Guide. And now his drinks are being served at his restaurant in New Orleans, Beachbum Berry’s Latitude 29, which Esquire and Playboy named one of the USA’s best new bars, and the New Orleans Advocate calls “a treasure chest of the tastes and attitude that first made Tiki so popular, curated by someone uniquely qualified for the task.” While this is all way too much work for a bum, he is also currently writing 29 entries for The Oxford Companion to Spirits and Cocktails and lecturing about tropical drinks across the U.S., Europe, and Latin America.
