A British barman has narrowly lost out on the title of World Draught Master.

Nick Kirman, from Lincoln, reached the final of the Stella Artois competition at the Grand Hyatt hotel in Cannes.

The competition, to determine excellence in delivering the brand’s nine-step pouring ritual, was won by Marjolein Geuens, of Belgium.

Kirman was selected to represent the UK after The Strait & Narrow bar, his employer, was selected as one of the best performing Stella Artois Connoisseurs outlets in the country.

He said: “Having the chance to be part of the World Draught Masters championship has been fantastic, showing how a quality product should be served and presented has been great. It was really exciting to visit Leuven where Stella Artois originates and I can’t believe I also had the chance to go to Cannes. I hope I made Lincoln and the UK proud.”
