Tetsu Kasuya is your 2016 Brewers Cup Champion. In a pool of over thirty of the world’s best brewers, there’s got to be one that swims the fastest. And Tetsu Kasuya of Japan out-lapped them all! They will be taking home a shiny new VST Refractometer, a trip to Brazil from Ally Coffee, a $500 gift voucher for goods and services from Bonavita, a Lighttells CM-100 Roast Analyzer, and a wonderful gift set from the folks at Taf.

Here are the top six standings from today’s finals. In our hearts, all of these competitors are champions. Congratulations, all.
