Based in Chicago but expanding internationally, the Cicerone Certification Program certifies and educates beer professionals, testing on five key areas: Keeping and Serving Beer; Beer Styles; Beer Tasting and Flavors; Brewing Ingredients and Processes; and Beer and Food Pairing.
To date, the programme has certified more than 50,000 individuals worldwide. In Australia, The Local Taphouse in Melbourne and Sydney are the first venues to have all front-of-house staff credentialed as Certified Beer Servers under the Cicerone programme.
Brewers, publicans, importers, distributors and other beer industry professionals are invited to attend this informal event as Ray talks about the programme and answers any questions about beer, brewing and the American beer scene that people care to ask.
First regular glass of tap beer is on Ray! After that, drinks will be available at normal bar prices.
Date and time: Monday August 31st. 6pm – 7pm
Location: The Local Taphouse, 184 Carlisle St, East St Kilda
RSVP essential to [email protected] by midday at Monday August 31st.
