Kevin Masters is the current Food and Beverage Director of the AAA 4 Diamond Carnegie Hotel in Johnson City, Tennessee. His career in restaurants spans the better part of two decades, which includes 14 years of crafting cocktails and curating the region’s finest whisk(e)y bar. Kevin’s influences stem from growing up in a high mountain valley of East Tennessee. He continues a long family history of utilizing the land by incorporating the local flora into his bartending. Kevin is partnering with chef Nathan Brand on a forthcoming restaurant in Johnson City. Together, they hope to push the boundaries of the local dining scene in upper East Tennessee and build on the strong community that exists in the mountains.
