British Guild of Beer Writers


The British Guild of Beer Writers held their annual awards last week, and at that ceremony I was honoured to be awarded the silver prize in the 'Best Use of Online Media' category. If you write or communicate about beer in Britain, the guild awards are as big as it gets, to walk away with an award is just a huge honour.

I write this blog because I love beer. Beer and brewing fill my head with enthusiasm and ideas, they provoke me to be creative and this blog is my outlet for that creativity. Whether it's a homebrew recipe, comparing hop varieties to Star Wars, bursting to tell people how good the beer I just drank is or an experiment I've been making a mess of the kitchen with, BeerBirraBier is my outlet and my means by which to create.

The fact that people read what I write and engage with each other over it - that's the icing on the cake. To be given an award? That's like the cherry and the delicate little dusting of sugar ...


Congratulations to all the other winners on the night. It's fantastic to spend an evening with so many talented people, and it really inspires me to continue improving.

Congratulations, Mark, I've no doubt you'll be featuring in the awards again in future years. Do what Mark Dredge did, and leverage that win into extra publicity/work for yourself.
