Guild Member Profile

Gavin Aitchison

  • Yorkshire and Humber

What is the one thing you'd like to tell visitors to the Guild's website?

I was pub & beer columnist and news editor for The Press newspaper in York from 2009 to 2017. I now work for a charity in the north west of England but live in York and contribute a regular freelance column for The Press in York and The Telegraph & Argus in Bradford. New parenthood means I spend much less time nowadays in the pub, so I have recently started dabbling in home-brewing. Away from beer, I enjoy walking and photography, and endure Scottish football.

What you can offer as a writer/beer lover?

Available freelance to media publications looking for beer and pub-related content, or to breweries seeking media advice, or website and social media support.

What do you like most about being a Guild of Beer Writers member?

The Guild is full of fantastic people, who love beer and enjoy telling others about it. What’s not to like?
