The panel of judges for the national finals were Malaysia’s Heineken® Draught Master, Gerard Anselm and Star Academy Trainer, Jonathan Chong. The judging criteria included mastering the perfect pint pouring skills and the ability to craft the perfect drinking experience with sophistication in that short period of time.
Malaysia won the World No. 2 bartender title in 2013 and bagged the first place at the Global Bartender Finals in Amsterdam, in the Netherlands, last year. The 2017 Heineken® Global Bartender Final has been postponed until 2018 to allow for new and exciting programme developments. The Heineken® Global Bartender Final remains a key element of the Heineken® Star Serve program and will be back next year with additional elements to once again give bar staff an opportunity to show off their rinse, pour, skim, check and serve ritual to a global audience.
With the aim to share our passion for quality with our consumers, Heineken® will be at Trec, KL with its “Discover More Behind The Star” event where consumers can uncover the magic that goes behind each pint and learn how to pour one themselves. The event will be at 9pm – 1am daily on Thursday, 24 August until Saturday, 26 August 2017.
