2019 Guild Awards winners
2019 Guild Awards winners

Please put Thursday, 10th December from 7.00 – 8.00 pm in your calendars for the announcement of the Guild’s Annual Awards 2020 winners.

We’re gutted, of course, that we can’t be gathering in person and enjoying a few beers, delicious food and the company of other Guild members while we celebrate our winners. But we hope you’ll want to join us for this year’s online version; our finalists have written, blogged, and broadcast with as much talent as in a ‘normal’ year, and deserve our (virtual) applause! And after the announcements, there will be an option to stay online to chat with other Guild members.

Back in March, we weren’t sure we’d be able to run our Awards at all, so to be announcing winners and runners up in nine categories, plus our Beer Writer of the Year and Brewer of the Year, feels like a triumph.  We are enormously grateful to all our sponsors, who have stepped up to make sure that in this extraordinary year, we are able to reward the work of our talented members.

So please save the date and we’ll be in touch nearer the time with joining details. And before then we’ll publish the shortlist for all our categories – so you’ll know if you’re in the frame for a (real) tankard.
