SETH KEPLINGER, Beverage Manager, Thompson Savannah

While studying exercise science and allied health, Seth discovered that despite his love for sports medicine, hospitality was his true passion – particularly when it came to creating original cocktails. Starting his career in Charleston, South Carolina, under the mentorship of top industry professionals, Seth quickly embraced the opportunity to learn, grow and create with purpose before making his way to Savannah with the intent to impact the food and beverage community in a positive way. Now, as the beverage manager at Thompson Savannah, Seth’s inspired bar program reflects thoughtful and balanced offerings that feature whimsical flavor combinations that push boundaries.
