The Perfect Pour Contest

A refreshing Duvel with its fine-poured head perfectly started in the middle of the iconic “D” on our iconic tulip glass – it’s a thing of beauty! But who pours it best? Are you up for the challenge?

The Perfect Pour Contest

A special beer like Duvel deserves the Perfect Pour

A special beer like Duvel deserves the Perfect Pour

The second edition of the Duvel USA Perfect Pour competition was a smashing success with over 500 bartender entries from around the U.S. Each bartender perfected their Duvel Pour and entered the contest by uploading their Perfectly Poured Duvel Pour photo on the Duvel USA Perfect Pour website.

With a steady hand and incredible showmanship, Jerry Estrada (pictured here) from the Wurstküche in Los Angeles, California, mastered the challenge and was crowned the 2023 Duvel USA Perfect Pour Champion at the final pour-off contest in Las Vegas.

Jerry Estrada and four other finalists from around the country traveled to Las Vegas to compete in the contest. The finals contest was held at the Resort World in Las Vegas. It was lights, camera, and action as each contestant poured a total of three Duvels, with the last Pour blindfolded. It was an extremely close contest, with Jerry setting himself apart with his last Pour to take home the U.S. Title

The 3rd Annual Duvel Perfect Pour contest will take place in 2024, with the bartenders submitting entries during April and May, with the finals again in Las Vegas in August.

Duvel, Belgium’s #1 speciality beer

Duvel is Flemish for “devil” and that’s no coincidence. This devilishly strong blond is slow-brewed to perfection with the finest ingredients for a heavenly taste. The 90-day brewing process results in a highly carbonated beer with incredible head retention. The same dedication, care, and commitment to quality that Duvel puts into the brewing of every bottle should be given to the serving of the beer. That’s why Duvel developed the first Belgian tulip glass in the 1960s to offer a more complete experience to this iconic beer.
