After polishing his skills, Brock left to serve and eventually bartend at M&S Grill on the Country Club Plaza.

As he further immersed himself in the local cocktail industry, he was asked by a group of local restaurant entrepreneurs and cocktail experts to open The Rieger Hotel Grill & Exchange and Manifesto in the Crossroads district in downtown Kansas City. After a year bartending at the new restaurant location, he began to bartend at Grunauer, a German restaurant also in the Crossroads district, every Sunday.
