Honorary membership for Hairy Biker

Dave Myers, one of TV's Hairy Bikers duo, has been presented the first honorary membership to the British Guild of Beer Writers.

Accepting his honorary membership from Guild chairman Tim Hampson at the Guild's recent awards dinner, Myers says: "This was totally unexpected, but very welcome. I'm delighted to become part of an organisation that promotes beer and pubs: two great British institutions that I've always been happy to support.

"Judging the Guild's awards was a pleasure; I was delighted to discover a wealth of seriously good writing about beer and pubs by some talented communicators and I hope that by becoming involved with the Guild I might be able to help push more of their excellent work out to a broader audience."

Hampson says: "The Guild wanted to occasionally honour the work of people outside our membership who have fulfilled our mission ‘to extend public knowledge and appreciation of beer and pubs'.

"Dave was a dedicated and enthusiastic judge of our Awards, as well as being a powerful advocate for beer and pubs through his TV programmes and books. We're delighted to make him the Guild's first honorary member."
