Just some of the things people had to say about the course.  In the beer world, these people would be referred to as “The good guys”.


“Peter is a dedicated teacher with a mature palette from years of study and working as a chef. His course was invaluable in preparing me to pass the tasting portion of the Certified Cicerone® exam, especially the off-flavour section. He also provides the best possible examples of beer styles, including ones that are difficult to find in Ontario. The guest lecturers he brought in, and the sample exams, prepared me well for the big day. I highly recommend this class to aspiring Cicerones.”

“Peter’s class was a great way to build my confidence preparing for the Cicerone® exam. Having Peter track down the vast array of styles and facilitate group discussion in an organized fashion was incredibly helpful if not wonderfully convenient. Weekly meetings to taste and discuss the various styles with others helps you see things that you may not discover on your own, as well as evaluate your own knowledge base as it compares with your peers who are also going to write; the class helps you understand where you are and what you need to prepare for to achieve your goal. Thanks for the memories Pete! ”

“Peter’s Beer Education class was invaluable in helping me prepare to write the Certified Cicerone Exam. The course was very thorough, a lot of fun, and most of all, effective at helping me learn the BJCP styles, history and comparisons, understanding and evaluating off-flavours and blind tastings, and helping me build full confidence walking into the exam. Peter’s course helped me pass my first attempted at the Certified Cicerone® exam. Thanks Peter!”
