Talking Taste: Sam Treadway, Bartender at Backbar in Somerville

Named Boston’s best bartender by Boston magazine in 2013, Sam Treadway has come a long way, since his first Boston bar job at Cheers. Working his way through various positions he learned the trade there; jobs in his Minnesota college town and at Eastern Standard allowed him to experiment with flavors and master classic cocktails. A quick stint in Hawaii followed but was cut short when the creators of hip Somerville newcomer Journeyman invited him to open a quirky bar there. In the three years since Backbar opened, Treadway has gained notoriety and a loyal fan base for innovations like smoky meat-infused spirits, spinach syrup, and spicy caramel popcorn with house-cured bacon.
