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.
