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

We are a broad church but among our members are most of the people who have enabled the beer revolution to happen in the UK are to be found here.

What you can offer as a writer/beer lover?

A strong understanding of the British, European and global beer movement from wee heavy at Traquair House in 1965 to smoked porter on Svalbard in 2017.  I am a member of the Executive of the European Beer Consumer Union, completely independent from industry influences and know a lot more than I should about what is really going on in the global beer scene at Government, macro-economic, beer designing, stock-seeking and consumer preference levels.  I am available for consulting, conferences and serious beer events.

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

Networking with interesting people.

Pieces of work by Tim:

  • The World Atlas of Beer

    The only beer book on the market today that gives you the whole story of where beer has reached in the second decade of the 21st century – reviewing 35 beer countries and mentioning 30 more.  Fully illustrated, completely independent and absent of hype and drudgery.
