Overall Winner – Beer Marketer of the Year
The awards are run in partnership with national drinks supplier, Matthew Clark.
Leading beer writer and co-founder of the Beer Marketing Awards, Pete Brown said: “The awards are open to all, demonstrated by the breadth of winners from last year’s competition, that included: Beavertown, Budweiser and Fuller’s. So whether you’re a mainstream lager brand creating a large scale TV advertising campaign or a microbrewer pouring your creativity into social media, the awards are open to all, at every level.” Adding: “We were thrilled with the event last year, not only with the quality and volume of entries, but with that fact that all of the tickets for the awards event sold out so quickly. We’re keeping the event at the same venue this year in order to re-create the same atmosphere, so people should get their tickets whilst they can.”
Details of how to enter the awards or buy tickets to the awards evening can be found at www.beermarketingawards.co.uk with a closing date for entries of 22nd Feb 2016. Winners will be announced at an event on 14th April 2015 at the Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, London.
