congrats! I have this cert, too. I’d love to become a full blown Cicerone, but it costs about $350! I guess I’ll get BJCP instead, it’s only $50 I believe.
I’m not even sure it would be worth it unless you actually owned a restaurant or owned/worked for brewery.
Ha! Love the headline. I’ve always seemed to find a large cross-section of people who say “study!” or “If you homebrew and have a good idea about beer, you’ll be fine.”
What were your thoughts on the test?
It wasn’t too tough, although it will be easier for some than others. There were some questions that were really specific to how to treat beer at a bar or restaurant, like how to change a keg, how to clean a glass, what actions you could do to affect a beer’s properties, etc. Then there were some questions that were really specific to a style of beer, what properties it should and should not have, off flavors, how it’s made, etc. None of my questions revolved around pairing of beer with food.
Check out the syllabus to get an idea of the questions.
