Spearheaded by Canada’s only Master Cicerone, Mirella Amato, author of the award-winning book Beerology: Everything You Need to Know to Enjoy Beer…Even More, Beerology’s mission is to help grow the industry by promoting a better understanding of beer and its many qualities.



People always ask me how I got into beer…

I’ve enjoyed beer since my first sip and it’s always come as a surprise to me that people don’t generally experience and appreciate beer in the same way as wine and other foods.

Since 2006, my mission has been to promote a better understanding of beer and its many qualities, as well as the philosophy that there is a beer for every food, every mood and every occasion.

My goal with Beerology is to help drive the industry forward with a focus on quality and approachability
