Cicerone® Beer Styles Workshop
The Brewers Association is teaming up with the Cicerone® Certification Program for another pre-conference educational workshop. This 3-hour immersive course will be held before the educational sessions begin on Sunday morning.
Cicerone Program content director and Master Cicerone® Pat Fahey will cover several approaches to mastering beer styles, perfect for anyone studying for a Cicerone or BJCP exam, or just hoping to brush up on their beer style knowledge. Attendees will also have an opportunity to hone their palates through guided style discrimination tastings. If you’re looking to take your beer knowledge to the next level, this is a can’t-miss opportunity!
Draught Beer Quality Workshop
The greatest draught beers in the world can only be represented in their truest form when served on a clean, well maintained draught system. This workshop will educate attendees on the factors involving a draught system that can make or break a beer lover’s experience. Serving beer correctly not only maintains the integrity of the brewers’ hard work, but is also more profitable for retailers.
