General Manager Ryan Brewster
Ryan Brewster elevates the NIOS beverage program sky high with his handpickedÂ wine selection. With over 80 wines options on our menu, Brewster's dedication to a fantastic selection is no small feat.
Honing in on the tastes of NIOS guests, Brewster likes to play with the familiar, offering wines that showcase a traditional grape in a new and inventive wayâ€”such as an un-oaked chardonnay or a cabernet from South America. He loves pairing this extensive wine selection with Chef Jarett and Jair's delicious creation and offers personalized wine pairings upon request.
Brewster is a New Jersey native with a degree in Hospitality from Syracuse University. Ryan started with Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants as an intern at Silverleaf Tavern in New York City. Proving his skill and commitment to a quality guest experience, Ryan joined the beverage team at Scala's Bistro in Kimpton's Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco. Loving life behind the bar, Brewster moved upstairs to the iconic Harry Denton Starlight Room where he continued to master the craft of cocktails and his love for all things bubbly.
Ryan joined the NIOS team in 2010 as Assistant General Manager. He is an avid bowler, loves golf, still kicks around the old soccer ball, and sings a mean karaoke tune.
Be sure to stop by and ask Ryan about his epic trip with Master Sommelier Emily Wines to Champagne, France. His knowledge of bubbles is truly impressive!
