HAGATNA, Guam—Ambros Inc. is proud to announce the Micronesian Winner of the 2013 Stella Artois World Draught Masters Regional Final, held at the Sofitel So Bangkok Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand.
Stella Artois World Draught Masters Competition held last Oct. 22, 2013, featured six countries from the Asia-Pacific region (Micronesia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, and Japan) with three representatives each.
A panel of six experts judged the 18 participants in the two tests prepared: Passion Test and Pour Test. Participants were evaluated based on their responses to the questions given during the Passion Test and their performance and technical precision displayed during the Pour Test, which followed the Stella Artois 9-Step Pouring Ritual
Kathleen Aquino of TGI Friday’s Guam was recognized as the Micronesian winner and will serve as our 2014 Stella Artois Ambassador for 2014. She will also be Micronesia’s representative in the Stella Artois World Draught Masters Global Competition to be held in May 2014 in Cannes, France.
Micronesia’s other Stella Artois WDM representatives were Jonathan San Nicolas from Proa and Ellen Amar from The Venue. The three participated in a contest last September and were determined as the top three finalists to represent Micronesia in the regional competition.
“The Stella Artois World Masters Draught Finals is a very prestigious competition and Ambros Inc. is very proud of our talented local bartenders who participated and duly represented Micronesia. We look forward to the Stella Artois WDM Global Competition and wish Kathleen Aquino all the best in the upcoming event,” said Tom Shimizu, general manager of Ambros Inc.
