Spanish brewer, Estrella Galicia, has crowned its first UK Beer Master after a year-long search for the best in the business – Bartosz Bobrowski of Brindisa.

The winner and runners up include:

  • Winner and the first UK Beer Master Champion: Bartosz Bobrowski of Brindisa London Bridge
  • Second place: Roberto Merida of Sabor, London
  • Third place: Bruno Emerson Maciel of Kaltur, Newcastle
