Art of Business: American Glory 

Educating Tastes

  • American Glory BBQ

Joe Fierro spent years behind a Wall Street desk, dreaming of a restaurant. Now he presides happily over two locations of American Glory in Hudson and Tannersville, beloved for multiple styles of slammin' BBQ and over 100 whiskeys. The dream is real.

What makes a great whiskey bar? "Selection, knowledge, mixing skill, ice, the perfect serving vessel. Our bartenders can explain each whiskey's flavor profile, origin, distilling process and correct way to be served, and pair the right whiskey with a customer's food. There is nothing better than the look on a customer's face when they request Jack Daniels and my bartenders offer a tasting flight of four different Kentucky or New York whiskeys, at the same price point but with flavor profiles that will make you forget you ever drank Jack or Maker's Mark. It's like winning a game. We converted another sour mash drinker to a budding whiskey connoisseur. Score!"
