food and wine festival branno kent image

With a background as wacky as he is, Branno Kent found his way into the service industry after feeling he was “missing out on his 20’s”. He left his Marketing position with the AEFFE GROUP and immersed himself into the hospitality industry. With his natural hunger for information and self growth he stumbled upon the world of craft cocktails…He was immediately consumed by it.
Branno has had the privilege of working side by side with some of the main pioneers of this wonderful movement. While manning the bar at the hottest venues in Northern California, he was invited to help build the Sacramento Bartenders Guild with beverage connoisseur Eric Casrto of Bourbon, Branch and Rickhouse in San Francisco, where the two single handedly introduced fine craft cocktails to the state capitol.

In 2008, he launched his own company, Rebirth Int., a consulting firm that caters to restaurants, lounges, an night clubs assisting them with bar renovation and design, seasonal an regional menu design,  an staff training. Since moving to San Diego, this past year, he has assisted in several of the city’s newest hot spots including San Diego’s #1 night club FLUXX, Southern California’s favorite house venue Voyeur, and many other successful new ventures. With a quirky personality and the goal of just making you smile, this young man is one to watch out for in upcoming projects of libation delights.
