Craft Beer Tasting (theme of your choice!) with the best Cicerone around!
Discover the exciting world of craft beer through our Cicerone Hosted Craft Beer Tasting experience. During this experience, your guests will be accompanied by Andrew Bieber, AKA the Cycling Certified Cicerone (a cicerone is like a sommelier, but for beer). He’ll take participants on a magnificent tour de pints featuring some of the best craft beers from independent breweries across the United States. During the tasting, he deftly combines trivia and games with tasting techniques and beer history to create an entertaining and educational experience.
Each shipment for this package comes with 4 craft beers and 3 perfectly paired cheeses (suitable for 2-3 people), as well as the shipping and virtual beer tasting experience*. Typical packages include 3-4 different styles of beer, showcasing the wide range of possible beer styles out there. This experience is especially appropriate for those with little to no knowledge of craft beer, but it can be customized to fit any taste and for any level of beer drinking experience — even skilled homebrewers will learn a thing or two!
Each shipment for this virtual beer tasting experience includes:
- 4 craft beers (may include craft lagers, IPAs, stouts, and other styles)
Additional offers and considerations:
Add a musician to the experience for $250
Add cheese or other food pairings $30+
Andrew Bieber is the Cycling Certified Cicerone. A Cicerone is like a sommelier but for beer, and the "Cycling" part is so his poor body can maintain a healthy equilibrium while being a professional beer taster. He's the host of the podcast Washington Beer Talk, on the board of directors of Washington's first Cooperative Brewery, Flying Bike, and occasionally brews beer at Dirty Couch, Seattle's best (in his opinion) brewer of sour, barrel-aged beers. When you join the Cycling Cicerone for a tasting, you'll be treated to magnificent tour de pints. Craft beer from independent breweries around the United States is shipped to your door. During the tasting, he deftly combines trivia and games with tasting techniques and the rich history of beer to create an entertaining and educational experience.
