In order to become a Certified Cicerone one must have a deep and well-rounded knowledge of beer and beer services. George Dimeo, Sales Professional at Maletis Beverage, has exemplified just this. We are proud to announce George Dimeo as our first Level 2 Certified Cicerone.
Dimeo never thought that when he came to Maletis Beverage 14 years ago that he would find a love for beer and a budding career, “I only thought this place was going to be a summer job, turns out I loved it and stuck with it.” Through the years at Maletis, Dimeo has excelled at various positions, established himself as an integral part of the Maletis sales force, and honed his keen taste for beer.
Becoming a Certified Cicerone is no easy feat, but Dimeo does not plan to stop there, “I will eventually take the Master Cicerone test, no time table, but I will get there.” With working so heavily and intimately in the beer industry, you would think that Dimeo would get sick of the stuff, but he sums his life up as “beer, family, and pool.” Dimeo truly helps Maletis to lead the industry.
