The annual British Guild of Beer Writers (http://www.beerwriters.co.uk/news.php) awards and associated slap-up feast was held on Thursday night, featuring a wonderful pairing of beer and south Indian food, prepared by Sriram Aylur, the Michelin-starred chef at Quilon (http://www.quilon.co.uk/) in London. Simon Jenkins was crowned Beer Writer of the Year, an excellent choice whose work can be read here (http://www.yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk/barandpubreviews/Pub-Review-North-Bar-Briggate.6509721.jp), while other beneficaries included Brewers’ Guardian (http://www.blogger.com/goog_374177210) (http://brewersguardian.com/)editor Larry Nelson, Mark Dredge (http://www.pencilandspoon.com/) and the ever chirpy Zak Avery (http://thebeerboy.blogspot.com/2010/11/500-beers-does-its-business.html). Oh and I won a silver in the Best Journalism in National Publications category (an award which I have won three times now); if you’re interested here are several links to the work I submitted — my DT piece on beer (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/foodanddrink/pubs/7566718/Britains-beer-scene-The-Great-British-Pint.html), an All About Beer piece on Brit craft lager (http://allaboutbeer.com/live-beer/brewing/brewstyles/2010/09/renaissance-of-british-craft-lager/) (plus recommended beers here (http://allaboutbeer.com/live-beer/brewing/brewstyles/2010/09/five-british-craft-lagers/)) and a review of the Sheffield Tap (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/foodanddrink/pubs/7720880/Yorkshire-pub-guide-The-Sheffield-Tap-Sheffield.html). The rest of the awards can be seen on Pete Brown’s blog (http://petebrown.blogspot.com/). And if the food and pairings below whet your appetite (they were matched by Messers Brown and Avery) then don’t forget to put your name down for next year’s do when it’s announced, it sold out rather quickly this year.
