The 2016 UK Brewers Cup Semi-Finals announced the top six who will advance to the Brewers Cup Finals at the London Coffee Festival in scenic sunny Shoreditch. Twelve brave baristas brewed in an all-day coffee bonanza…we had compulsory secret coffees, open service dazzle brews, and we were here all the while, live-blogging! Live-blogging!

The sun has set over Londontown, and we now know who will go forth and brew tomorrow in the grand finals ceremonies here in the Old Truman Brewery. Six will compete, but only one will advance to the World Brewers Cup stage taking place in Dublin come June. Who will it be? Only time will tell. For now, these are the six top 2016 UK Brewers. Congratulations, all! If we could have it our way, we’d take you all to Dublin with us.
