Robert HumphreysRobert Humphreys, formerly the Honorary Secretary of the All-Party Parliamentary Beer Group has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for services to alcohol policy.  Robert is also Chairman of PASS, the Proof of Age Scheme, and Best Bar None.  He is also a non-executive director of SIBA, a trustee of the National Brewing Museum in Burton and a long serving member of the committee of the Guild of British Beer Writers.


Andrew Griffiths, Member of Parliament for Burton and Uttoxeter and Chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Beer Group said “No one has done more to raise awareness of British beer and pubs in Westminster and the European Parliament.  He set up the Beer Group in 2003 and was its honorary secretary for an incredible 21 years. His passion for beer and pubs is only matched by his encyclopaedic knowledge of the sector, enormous charm and the sheer hard work that he has devoted to promoting our national drink. This recognition is enormously well deserved.”
