​Welcome to Girl Walks into a Bar, a weekly Gut Check feature that spotlights local bars and bartenders. This is part one of Alissa Nelson's two-part profile of Harvest bartender Veronica Schuster. Part two, a Q&A with Schuster, will be posted tomorrow.

The bar at Harvest isn't easily overlooked -- it's the first sight that greets diners as they walk through the door. Yet the fourteen-year-old establishment is known to most for its menu and not its equally carefully crafted seasonal drink list, which bartender Veronica Schuster and restaurant owner Stephen Gontram collaborate on.

The bar selections mirror the restaurant's focus on seasonal, locally focused cuisine. Harvest fresh-squeezes its juices fresh and stocks top-shelf liquors; a cucumber martini is made with Hendrick's gin, and the Wild & Kickin' has a Maker's Mark backbone.
