Cicero’s Beer School

Are you a Hop Head? Or do you prefer the taste of roasted malt? Not sure? Come to Cicero’s Beer School and learn.


Most people think we are joking when we talk about beer school at Cicero’s. They think it isn’t a real school. We don’t joke about beer here at Cicero’s. Well actually, we do, but we aren’t joking about this.The classes consist of tasting, discussing, and learning about 3-5 different beers. Classes are taught by professionals in the industry. Some weeks, we have the brewers, other weeks, we may have the founders or the sales staff from a particular brewery or distributor. One thing is for sure, they are all experts.

These experts will teach you everything you ever wanted to know about beer, the brewery, and how they got where they are today. Take notes because there is a review at the end of each class. You could walk away with great beer prizes; t-shirts, glassware, signs, bottle openers and all kinds of other beer collectibles will be given out as prizes. Graduation is based on attendance….and you want to graduate. If you graduate you will receive great discounts on the beer you purchase at Cicero’s until the following graduation.

Cicero’s Beer School fall semester runs from mid September to mid December and the winter/spring semester is from mid January to mid April. Each week Cicero’s holds two beer school classes. One at 5:30pm and the other at 7:00pm. Each class runs for one hour. So, come to whatever class is more convenient for you. Arrive early and take advantage of our happy hour from 4:00pm – 7:00pm. We have deeply discounted appetizers and $1 off all 55 drafts.

We also have beer school field trips. Field trips from the past include: Anheuser Busch Plant, St. Louis microbrewery crawl, Charleville Brewery and the Tin Mill Brewery

You must be 21. No advance registration is required. Just show up on time with your ID and an open mind. Let your palate enjoy all the great tastes that beer has to offer. Learn from the Pro’s. It’s Fun and it’s Free. See you next week!
