"There are three levels of of Cicerones..."

"... starting out with Certified Beer Servers (an online exam), Certified Cicerones (an in-person test, complete with a tasting component), and the top level of Master Cicerone (an in-person exam lasting two days). The exams focus on five basic components: keeping and serving beer; beer styles; flavor and tasting; brewing process and ingredients; and beer and food pairing."

Next time you're in Chicago, grab dinner at The Publican. All of their servers are Cicerone. Amazing beer list, but even better oysters (perfectly shucked) & very creative vegetable preps. Also, world class housemade pork rinds.

And who among us doesn't associate great beer with pretentious Italian terminology?
