While attending college in Reno during the day, Stirred N' Shaken owner Stewart Campbell began shaking cocktails at night. Stewart quickly fell in love with tending bar and became dedicated to learning more through experience and research. Upon graduation, he moved to Lake Tahoe and started working at PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn, a venue widely known as having the best craft cocktail menu in Tahoe, with Stewart helping to create what it has become today. He completed Bar Smarts in 2013 and his Introductory Sommelier course in June 2014.
Stewart is nearly a decade into his bartending career and the wealth of characters who have sat across the bar have always challenged him with their requests of dry, sweet, sour, and strong - showing him that the best way to accomplish their commands is by asking questions. Stewart always asks questions because... life is too short to drink a bad Manhattan!
The Stirred N' Shaken team absolutely killed it at our wedding! The custom cocktails they did for the event were a huge hit and we are still getting compliments on them several months later. They were a pleasure to work with in the planning process and also incredibly helpful - would absolutely recommend them for your next event!
We loved having Stirred N' Shaken at our wedding! Stew and Jake were super communicative during the planning process and helping us figure out what kind of drinks we wanted to offer and the volumes we should think about purchasing. Their experience and advice really came in handy when we were determining our bar menu. Also, my husband and I were coming in from out of state and ordered most of our wine shipments online. Stew and Jake were extremely helpful and offered to let us ship it to them and even were able to bring it to the venue for us - they went above and beyond! They were fun and talkative with all of our guests while still staying professional and we received lots of compliments after the wedding about how great the bar/bartenders were. I felt in great hands right from the beginning with Stirred N' Shaken and would highly recommend them to bartender any wedding!
Jake and Stew bartended our wedding at Dancing Pines this summer, and I honestly can’t say enough nice things about them - as people and as a business! They were so responsive and helpful leading up to the event. Our bar was BYOB and they provided us with a sample buying list for our number of guests, which was a huge help. When it came to the day of our wedding, they came early and prepped everything. I didn't have to worry about a thing. Throughout the event, they kept the party going with excellent service and conversation. My husband and I had so many people compliment us about how friendly the bartenders were and how delicious the cocktails were. They went above and beyond in every way. I would highly recommend them for any event!
My wife and I just had our wedding last weekend at a beautiful outdoor venue just outside Sierraville. We hired Stirred N' Shaken to provide bartending services for the cocktail hour and reception. Stew and Jake are absolutely amazing at what they do. They create quality drinks and go above and beyond to make sure all the guests are getting great service. We would definitely recommend using Stirred N' Shaken for any wedding, party, or event that requires bartending services in the Tahoe and neighboring areas.
Stewart and Brandon were amazing! We hired Stirred N' Shaken for a small wedding in Schaffer's Mill - they exceeded expectations. Stew was great through the planning process, responded to emails promptly, always friendly, gave great suggestions - and most importantly had an awesome cocktail list. I hope to hire them again in the future, would highly recommend to anyone in the area.
