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

My name is Nick Law. I’m a Brewer, an Entrepreneur, a Brand Builder, a Visionary and a Communicator, and I’m as passionate about business as I am about beer.

Having successfully launched my own brand of craft beer in 2014, I rebranded and reshaped an existing local brewery, helping them find their voice in an established market, win various regional awards, and bring a new lease of life to the business. My beers have won regional and national awards, including SIBA Silver Overall Small Pack and Keg Beer in Competition.

I now work with a variety of breweries and businesses of different shapes and sizes, helping them to develop their brands, brew better beers and grow their businesses.

Having worked both in and out of the brewing industry, I offer a wide range of creative services and solutions that cater to your business needs. I have a background in marketing, design, sales, business development and – of course – the brewing and beer industry.  I’ve experienced both the highs and the lows of starting a business from scratch and running and managing an established business: my goal is to come alongside you on your own business and beer journey and help you hop forward.

What you can offer as a writer/beer lover?

I run a weekly podcast dedicated to the craft beer industry. Including both interviews, discussions and stories from a range of brewers and entrepreneurs within the industry, to advice about starting, scaling and sustaining your own ventures, the Hop Forward podcast is here to help you get ahead with your beers, brand and business.
