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

Joey Leskin has a mission: to make the world of craft beer accessible to more diverse audiences and the everyday drinker. His project, Beer In The City, inspires people like him from outside of the industry to drink craft beer made locally, while being entertained and learning a bit about it – whether it’s their first brew or their 1000th. He creates brewery guides for cities worldwide, runs immersive beer-themed events and writes articles that tell beer like it is.

What you can offer as a writer/beer lover?

An outlook on beer, breweries and accessibility that you won’t hear from inside the industry: how to increase the appeal of craft beer to a wider audience.

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

The ability to interact with other communicators on a level playing field.
