Two interesting beer tidbits

1) Ron Swodoba, Director of Craft Beer Education at Crescent Crown Distributors, is now the second person in New Orleans to be designated a Certified Ciccerone! The test sounds really hard, and I'm really glad his hard work paid off. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

2) Got a peek at August's new beer menu from my old friend Robert Wailes; and it looks nice.
