This Friday Stella Artois is hosting a competition to find their next Canadian Draught Master. 16 beer enthusiasts will get their chance to pour that perfect pint of Stella and the winner will earn a spot at the national championships. The event takes place at Doolins on Granville at 7:00pm and I just happen to be one of the judges in search of the perfect pour.

In order to qualify as a judge, I will be getting an education in the 9-step ritual Stella pouring process. This includes: the preparation, the chill, the unveiling, the liquid alchemy, the crown, the beheading, the judgment, the cleansing, and the bestowal. The process doesn’t happen on its own as it includes the use of that classic Stella Artois chalice, angles, temperatures, and the signature foam cutter.

    3. Tracey Flattes says:

      Hubby would love this pack!

    4. Oh er. But one question: will the contest be based on pouring draught beer, or from bottles? It looks like it’s off the tap, to judge from last year’s contest.

    5. Rebecca Bollwitt says:

      The kit (and guide with the kit) is for bottles, the competition is from taps. I re-worded it to clarify ๐Ÿ™‚
