From the release.
Nearly half of the 12,759 people from around the world who cast their vote for their favorite finalist felt Kerkmans was the perfect fit for this fabulous opportunity. Since the night his brother gave him a home brewing kit, Kerkmans has been extremely passionate about everything beer, from its production and pairings to sampling stouts and sharing his rich knowledge. This unique and all-consuming commitment to crafts helped him successfully beat out over 7,500 applicants from more than 30 countries – and three other highly-qualified finalists – for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
