Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino has made history by having the first and only female cicerone (beer sommelier) in the state of Nevada. Director of food and beverage Sarah Johnson, whose background is in the culinary arts, recently successfully completed the extensive three-hour exam, earning the title Certified Cicerone®, which designates someone who is proven to be an expert in all things beer. Johnson is now one of only two certified cicerones in Las Vegas and one of 611 in the world. Johnson is working with Mandalay Bay’s f&b team to develop a more expansive beer list throughout the property. Johnson said, “I’m looking forward to escalating Mandalay Bay’s beer program through expanded offerings and pairing dinners that will bring together chefs, brewers and lovers of great beer.
