6ourbon 7ime

What is 6ourbon 7ime?

It’s that time, be it at dusk or dawn, when you shake off the shift you just worked. It’s that moment when you leave chatting with customers and creating cocktails behind, and finally take a moment all your own. 

Pre-pandemic, this hour came like clockwork. It was built into the end of a shift––a proverbial bookend, propping you up after you’d given all you’ve got. These days, when work-life can invade everyday life, when everything is upside down, Beam Suntory wants you to reclaim that personal hour.


Join America’s top bartenders as they share curated 6ourbon 7ime Playlists on Spotify. Each one is paired with that bartender’s favorite cocktail––the bespoke drink to sip while tuning in.

The best part? You can have this restorative hour on repeat, any time of day, and you’ll be giving back to a great cause at the same time. Beam Suntory will donate $1 to the Restaurant Workers Community Foundation (up to $500) for each playlist follow.

Cheers … to 6ourbon 7ime – a stiff drink, a great song, a little time to one’s self.

Jared Schubert

“Making this playlist was so cathartic.” 25 year industry veteran Jared Schubert currently works as a bartender, consultant, and song and dance man in Louisville, KY. 

Jared’s inspiration for his playlist came from his connection to music as part of his condition of being human. “Music has the ability to transport anyone anywhere whether it be time or space, oftentimes it’s both.  It’s the way people commune emotionally, it’s almost part of human nature.”
