The California Craft Brewers Association (CCBA) is teaming up with the Cicerone® Certification Program for a new pre-conference educational workshop. This 3-hour immersive course will be held before the conference begins on Wednesday afternoon (September 11) from 1 to 4 p.m. Attendees interested in starting their CCBA Summit experience a little earlier than normal will find a wide range of topics of interest covered in this new feature for the conference. Cicerone Program content director and Master Cicerone® Pat Fahey will cover a selection of topics from the Certified Cicerone® curriculum. Attendees will also have an opportunity to hone their palates through a guided off-flavor tasting panel. If you’re looking to take your beer knowledge to the next level, this is a can’t-miss opportunity! Purchase tickets at https://2019summitexpo.eventbrite.com
