Be a Boots And Bourbon, Las Cruces New Mexico Bar Back
Barbacks are a little misunderstood. Many people don’t really understand what constitutes a barback job or what a bar backer really does. Typically called a runner or bar runner in Europe, it’s probably one of the most important positions in a bar. For without a competent bar back the bartenders will run out of stock and glassware and have to leave the bar area to go and get new bottles of liquor and change beer kegs. Barbacks, a.k.a. barbackers, bar backers or bar backs, are the people responsible for backing up the bartender(s).
