You've seen the commercials for Stella Artois. A bartender pours a perfect glass of beer, measures the head, then takes a knife and slices away the excess foam to create an object of beauty. This is beer porn at its finest.
Turns out, pouring the perfect pint is both art form and competition. On October 7, finalists from around the country will converge on Washington D.C. for the 2011 World Draught Masters Competition.
It is there, that seven regional winners will compete in the nine-step process that results in a picture perfect pour.
Miami has been chosen as one of the cities to hold a regional contest.
This Friday at Brickell Irish Pub from 8 p.m. to midnight,
bartenders from around south Florida will compete to see who has what
it takes to move on to the finals.
The best part? We have two V.I.P. tickets for you and a friend. You'll
not only get a behind-the-scenes tour, but you'll get ringside seats to
watch all the action, including the ultra-awesome knife play!
To win, simply tell us on our Facebook Page
why you like beer. (Make sure we're able to reach you via Facebook to
let you know you won.) If you're not a fan of Short Order yet, become
one to get the latest info on Miami food news and some great freebies.
We'll announce the winner tomorrow.
