The Cicerone Certification Program is built around a series of four professional certification exams starting with Certified Beer Server and ending with the top-level Master Cicerone. In the coming months, additional resources and tools will become available through the Spanish website to help beer professionals prepare for exams and access the second-level Certified Cicerone exam in the new language.
With roots in the American craft beer movement and in-depth coverage of classic European beer culture, the Cicerone program has become the global standard for assessing beer professionals since its launch in 2008.
