Aaron Lilley from The Cardan in Lisburn has been crowned Heverlee L’Apprentice 2016, winning an amazing £5,000 trip for two to Belgium, home of Heverlee lager.

He emerged victorious from an exclusive group of around 100 ‘Heverlee Protégés’ who were trained earlier this year by renowned draught master, Michael Stewart aka Le Principal. Armed with bespoke training in the delivery of the celebrated Perfected Pour – uniquely associated with the authentic premium Belgian Lager – the Protégés returned to the trade to implement Heverlee promotions and pass on what they had learned to their colleagues.

The other five Protégés selected for the final were Elaine Allardyce from Groucho’s in Richhill, the current LCN Bar Person of the Year; Kieran Devlin from The Pavilion, Stormont; Mark McConville from The Swift in Carrickfergus; Charlie McClelland from Malone Rugby Club in Belfast and Rebekah Magowan from Gowdy’s in Lisburn.
