"We serve a lot of craft beers and cask conditioned ales," says Bulls Head owner Paul Pendyck. "Cicerone certification basically means that when you come in to the pub, you'll be served by someone who knows more than just the names of the brews."
The Cicerone Beer Institute certification program covers proper storage of beer, maintenance of draft systems, economics and other subjects pertinent to the business.
“They're also tested on pairing beer with foods and identifying and analyzing flavors in beer, so a person who wants to try something new can get an educated suggestion.”
The Cicerone Insitute is run by Ray Daniels, a veteran of the US beer industry and president of the Craft Beer Institute. His background includes experience in nearly every aspect of brewing and beer service including organizing Chicago's Real Ale Festival and writing dozens of books on brewing and beer.
“I just want to keep a high standard and have fun with it,” says Pendyck.
In operation since 2010, the Bulls Head Public House brings the true, authentic English pub experience to Lancaster County in the beautiful and historic town of Lititz, Pennsylvania.

Established in March 2010, The Bulls Head is modelled after a traditional British pub with great food &, of course, quality beers. A true pub promotes conversation & meeting people, so the Bulls Head has no TV...except every 4 years for The World Cup!
