So I am going through the training program of a beer bar here, and the owner had the audacity to write up his own descriptions for nearly every beer style you can imagine. That's all fine and good, but after a bit of reading I found myself yelling at my manual "NO NO NO!". Its so frustrating to me that this is what they TEACH their staff, and large portions are either very poorly worded, or just wrong.

Well I am pleased to announce I have moved on to a much better opportunity. Sad to say its not at a beer bar, but at least I don't have to deal with Cicerone Certified Beer Servers who think they know better than me.

The up side is, I finally have the job I got a BS for and I'll still be involved with craft beer in at least some way at work.

Congrats on your move.
I'm also gratified to hear that I'm not the only one who thinks that Cicerone certification is a pretty meaningless exercise.

Perhaps the second level is more worthwhile, but the first bar is just set too low imho
