The Guild of Beer Writers has recognised industry talent at its annual awards, which took place on Thursday at Park Lane Hotel on Piccadilly.

Author Pete Brown was named Beer Writer of the Year 2016, representing a hat-trick for Brown, who also took the title in 2012 and 2009.

Breandán Kearney, last year’s Beer Writer of the Year and chairman of judges for the 2016 competition, said: “The Awards recognise the UK’s most talented communicators about beer and pubs across a range of channels from books to blogs, press to podcasts. Judges had difficult decisions to make in choosing the finalists and winners from a field of high-quality entries.”

The Awards ceremony also saw the Guild’s Brewer of the Year title go to Richard Westwood, managing director of Marston’s Brewing Company.
