Sir Philip Cook honoured for Services to the Beer Industry
Sir Philip's work as a beer writer and spokesperson for the brewing industry has been recognised after years of service. Sir Phil was the inaugural Brewers Guild Beer Writer of the Year in 2012.
Sir Philip's honours citation reads: “Sir Philip has been an avid spokesperson and advocate of beer, brewing and the beer industry for much of the previous decade. His organ Beer Diary has set the benchmark within the industry for its commentary and recognition of industry initiatives. It is fair to say that no marketing campaign, industry effort, or product introduction has been effective until it has featured in Sir Phil’s insightful invective. Sir Phil has continued his services to the industry while maintaining a professional career and post-graduate academic studies as he pursues his Masters in Pondering.”
Sir Philip said this morning that he is delighted and humbled by the honour. “One is most amused by the recognition, and one desires one’s readership to appreciate that this will not affect one in the slightest. Three cheers for Her Majesty! In fact three cheers for everything Yeastie Boys does!”
