British Guild of Beer Writers Award Win for Crafted and Tapsters

​Last night we were delighted to scoop a prestigious award for our Crafted Handbook and Tapsters Cask Ale Guide, at the British Guild of Beer Writers Awards 2016.

The award was Guild Award for Best Beer Writer – Corporate Communications.

Both publications were commended for the high quality of writing within, offering support for the trade on a range of issues including picking the correct range and storing beer.

Crafted gained additional praise for using a paper produced from spent brewers’ grain on the cover.

The British Guild of Beer Writers was formed in 1988 to help spread the word about beers, brewing and pubs – and the awards evening recognises the best in class, across a small range of categories. For us to be recognised in this way shows just how well thought of Crafted and Tapsters are – building our reputation as a brewer offering more than just great beers.

Well done to all of the winners!
