Beerology in the News

Posted May 7, 2013 | 11:00 am, by Mirella

It’s been an exciting few months since I achieved my Master CiceroneTM certification, in December, becoming the first Master CiceroneTM in Canada. I’ve been delighted to see the attention that this certification has received across a range of different media outlets and publications. I am particularly happy to note that publications outside of the beer sphere have picked up the story and am quite hopeful that these articles will reach a broader audience, exposing new people to the idea of beer appreciation.

I also wanted to extend a warm thanks to the many beer bloggers who supported me by spreading the word about my certification. It’s fantastic to be working in such a supportive and enthusiastic community.

Here are some of the articles and segments that have mentioned my certification since December:

  1. Thanks Mirella for coming to Thunder Bay and giving us a fascinating lesson on pairing artisan beers & cheese. You’ve opened up my mind to how good beer can be especially when paired with the right cheese. Thanks!

  2. Mirella, I came across an article about you and your passion for Beer. Lately, I’ve been getting inspiration from around the inter-webs to pursue the Cicerone program, and a drive to begin home brewing again.

    Thank you for what you do, and the contribution it has made to my burgeoning craft beer education.
