Black and Brew Chicago’s goal is to recruit BIPOC, women, LGBTQ and students at inner-city community colleges interested in entering the craft beer industry awarding them Cicerone (certified beer server) CBS certification and employment opportunities through our Black Pride Beer scholarship fund.
Great beer service begins with the fundamentals: beer clean glassware, a proper pour, and beer that hasn’t been ruined by improper handling. When properly executed, these elements showcase the beer as the brewer intended. And in today’s beer world, every dialog between server and guest begins with talk of beer styles and flavors. The Cicerone Certified Beer Server exam assesses these skills to recognize those individuals who are best prepared to sell or serve a wide range of beers.
