The Brasilian Beersommelier champion has been selected
At the fourth Brazilian Beersommelier championship, held in early April, Edu Pelizzon was able to best a field of 150 competing Beersommeliers. He captivated the jury in Sao Paulo through the semifinal (40 participants) and the final (5 competing sommeliers). Edu Pelizzon has worked hard for this title, having successfully navigated a maze of tests and presentations that tested his skills in sensory technology application to the limit.
First prize for the winner is an extensive study tour as well as a unique professional development opportunity: the Barth-Haas-Group, principle sponsor for this event, has arranged a tour of the Yakima Valley (USA) hop cultivation and production facility, followed by a technical training course offered by the company’s own Hops Academy.
