Craft & Import Division

 “Anyone can call themselves an expert on beer. But when consumers want great beer they need help from someone who really knows beer flavors, styles, and service.”  

                                   -Cicerone® Certification Program


The Cicerone® Certification Program has become the industry standard for identifying those with significant knowledge and professional skills in beer sales and service. The exam itself allows individuals to quickly demonstrate that they possess a professional body of knowledge and essential tasting skills related to beer.


Brewers Distributing is very proud to say that our Craft & Import division is spearheaded by not one, but two Certified Cicerone®, Pat Hartzler and Kevin Fitch. We proudly employ the only two of the three Certified Cicerones working at the wholesale level in Central Illinois.
