We said that from the beginning. We have committed that we will support the effort of young and ambitions students from the OTEK of Anavyssos, at their attempt to claim the best possible position at the Draught Master competition at the 2nd Beer Festival of the 8th HoReCa.
We have planned to meet with them this afternoon at USED Bar at Chalandri. Everyone was there. Vaggelis, Kelly, Yiannis, Sofia, and the second Yiannis of our company. They were waiting for us at the bar, as we were late because the rain made me leave my motorcycle at home and use the car, something that made our transportation slow, my own and Danae’s that she would company us while she would take pictures from the process. They welcomed us with their young and pleasant smile. We started immediately, time was pressuring and the business.
After we analyze the rules of the competition and we made a quick presentation of the glasses, we started serving beer. Without wanting to spend a huge amount of beer from business’s barrel, we made theoretical and practical practice. The students – Draught Master competitors one by one was taking their place in front of Berlins faucet.
We corrected technical mistakes and we focused at issues that were concerning competitor’s psychology, their focus, and their perception of the hall as well as their communication with the judges. Definitely serving one or two times doesn’t give them the absolute chance to have a positive result. The fact that will compete well informed its important, despite the great experience. An important aspect for kids that never took part in a beer or any other competition before.
Tomorrow we will stand next to them. We will be there, to take pictures with them (I think today they have beaten their stress with photo shooting), to look at them (we will not be alone, more eyes will be present) and to applause them for their effort. Anyone who will visit HoReCa, support them at any competition they will participate. Give them courage, boost their mentality.
Kids. We wish you every success, for tomorrow! You will do it fine! The future belongs to you..
PS. Special thanks to USED Bar at Chalandri, for its hospitality, Natasha for her patience and the administration for being sensitive and acted in professional way, letting us using their bar and beer. They deserve congratulations.
