SIBA Trade Directory: Media and Publications

British Guild of Beer Writers

The Guild is supported by brewers, pub companies, and many suppliers associated with the brewing trade. They, too, are listed in our corporate members page. Beer is a subject extraordinarily well served by its affiliated journalists, in whatever media they operate. The quality of writing of beer journalists and the broad social canvas open which they sketch are remarkable. The Guild’s hope is that the public is given every opportunity to learn this and first hand from its members – and that the public can read, listen and view as frequently as possible how beer is flourishing in Britain today.
