Beer Exam School is the blog I will use to help me study for the Cicerone Certification Program, Certified Beer Server exam.
My name is Nathan Pierce. Since quitting my air quality planning job about a year ago due to, shall we say “irreconcilable differences” with management, I’ve been planning to start a brewery here in the Monterey area (California). To learn more about beer and to enhance my resume, I am going to take the exam for Certified Beer Server.
Certified Beer Server is the first level of the Cicerone® Certification Program. It’s just a 60-question exam online, but the syllabus seems intimidating and just glancing through it, I already see there’s a lot that I don’t yet know. After passing the exam, a Certified Beer Server will know anything about serving beer including:
- Keeping clean lines
- Styles of beer
- and lots more
Honestly, I have been planning to take this exam for months. Then I read about Pat Flynn doing a blog to study for the LEED Certification and it seemed like a great tool to hold myself accountable, organize my thoughts, and maybe help others who are also studying for the Certified Beer Server exam.
So here goes!
