Bartenders' Age-Guessing Experiment Shows Why They Need To Check IDs

Cheers and booze for their powers of perception.

If this experiment is any indication, your neighborhood bartender is probably better at making drinks than guessing how old you are.

Watch barkeeps with three weeks to nearly 40 years of experience attempt to determine whether people are underage. The drink slingers checked out 10 participants in the stunt and let’s just say the results, like a Bloody Mary, were mixed.

“I’m glad I check IDs,” one bartender said in the Cut video after their true ages were revealed.

“I would have carded everybody here, for the record,” another declared.

A toast to keeping it real, bartenders.
