Bryan Dayton, bartender at Oak at Fourteenth in Boulder, is featured in GQ's December 'Men of the Year 2011' issue. Dayton won GQ's Bombay Sapphire competition in Las Vegas in August, making him the most inspired bartender in America, as reported by Westword back in September. Dayton is on the cover of 5,000 copies of GQ and he'll be competing in the Bombay's world competition in London, though no date has been set. Until then, he'll be awaiting the reopening of Oak at Fourteenth, which caught fire last March. When open, Dayton will serve his crowning cocktail.
