Sean Kenyon was literally born to be behind a bar. He is a third generation Barman, his Grandfather, Mother and Father have been pub owners and bartenders in New Jersey since the 1930's. Sean was raised in his family's pubs and while other kids wanted to be firemen or super heroes, he always wanted to be a Bartender. He first stepped behind the bar at the young age of sixteen and has never left. Over the course of his 29-year bartending career, Sean has managed bars and cocktail programs in three states. In 2011, he realized a lifelong dream and opened Williams & Graham in Denver, CO. In 2013 & 2014 the bar was nominated for a James Beard award for the nation’s outstanding beverage program. National media such as CNN, Food & Wine Magazine, Imbibe Magazine, Wall Street Journal and Esquire have recently recognized his beverage programs. Sean feels blessed to be able to make a career out of something he loves so giving back to his community has always been a top priority. He works with several local and national charities. In 2008 Sean ran his first (and last) marathon, to benefit the V Foundation for Cancer Research and raised over $5000.
