Swig is like a traveling BYOB, so we do not provide the alocohol. However, if you decide to hire Swig, we will provide you with a custom bar checklist based on your guest count and what you would like to serve. It will cover everything from alcohol to glassware to mixers, and makes shopping nice and easy, plus cost efficient because you are purchasing/renting direct from the retailer.

And if you'd like to treat your guests to something special, we can also suggest a few specialty cocktails based on your likes and dislikes. We can even create a custom bar menu for a small fee, just ask!

First and foremost, be sure to research the vendor's service you are considering on the internet, as well as ask for current reviews and client referrals. You want to be sure the vendor is a reputable service and be extra safe since you are inviting them into your event to take care of you and your guests. Anybody can say they are a professional bartender or staffing professional, and this is very much a "you get what you pay for" type of industry. Swig may be a bit more pricy than our competition, but our clients and reviews prove our service is well worth the peace-of-mind.

A liquor license or permit is only required by the state if you plan on selling alcohol for a profit. Swig runs as a BYOB. You provide the alcohol and we serve it. Please contact the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board for information on obtaining a special permit.

There is no such thing as a "Licensed Bartender" and it is not required by PA state law to have at your event. If someone tells you they are a "Licensed Bartender" they might mean they are a "Certified Bartender." A bartender can come certified by attending a TIPS or RAMP seminar, a program intended to teach alcohol servers the right way to serve alcohol and lower insurance rates.

If someone tells you they are certified by a bartending school, they most likely went to a short workshop where they were taught how to make basic cocktails with colored water. Although these classes do help, I feel the best bartenders have real world experience with years behind a few different bars. Catering experience is also important so they know what it takes to setup and breakdown an event, as this is a huge part of what we do at every single event.
