|Tony is a Certified Cicerone TM,
the beer world’s equivalent to sommelier. Currently living in
Chattanooga, he is (at the moment) one of 2 Cicerones in Tennessee, and
the only one in East Tennessee. Tony loves talking beer, whether
it’s brewing, tasting, or pairing with local foods.
|Beer Menu Consulting
With the breadth of options available, there’s no reason your beer list shouldn’t be stellar. Tony can create a unique and stunning beer list to suit your themes – whether draft or bottles, 6 beers or 60.
The success of your beer program depends on your servers. Poorly informed servers can compromise the integrity of your restaurant, and it is key that they be prepared with basic knowledge of beer, how it is made, and the intricacies of the beer on your list.
Beer Dinners and Events
Tony’s passion is creating spectacular food and beer pairings that elevate both the cuisine and the beer itself. Whether casually on your menu or more formally at a sit-down beer dinner, pairings are a great offering to your customers when properly executed. He is also available for speaking engagements.
