My Beer Year

img_4772

My Beer Year by Lucy Birmingham shares stories from her year of learning about beer by experience in preparation for the Certified Cicerone (beer sommelier) test. She

  • went to a hop harvest
  • participated in a beer judging contest as a judge
  • cleaned the lines at a pub
  • brewed beer with new friends
  • attended a beer festival to educate her palate

She frequently invoked the flashcards she made based on the Beer Judging Style Guidelines during this journey. There’s an excellent Beer Master’s Bookshelf as well at the end.

This is the perfect syllabus if you ever decide you too would like to be a Certified Cicerone (which Birmingham is now by the way). Tempting.
