Welcome back to the 4th episode in this miniseries we did with the great guys over at @inkledeux training to get our Certified Beer Server designation by @cicerone.For all the beer "review" experts out there this episode is for you. Properly evaluating and grading beer is more than just an uneducated "I hate this". Its about knowing the difference between bad beer, beer you just don't like, and knowing what you don't like it. In this episode Brian Helton once again guides us as Liz, Brandon and I learn a thing or two.

If you’re a long time listener you know Chef Brett Vibber.  AZ cuisine is lucky to have him. I talk with Brett while he’s out in the field and we discuss how his whole life has been centered around being prepared. This one is not so much about beer as it is a discussion on life and stuff. So grab a beer anyways and enjoy.
