The awards, hosted by presenter and comedian Sandi Toksvig OBE, recognised the contributions of individuals and companies to the brewing and pub sector in 2014. They included a special Chairman’s Award for Brandon Lewis MP in recognition of his work during his time as community pubs minister.
The BBPA’s chief executive Brigid Simmonds said: “This year we have had some inspiring entries, and I want to thank them all for the exceptional work they have done throughout the year.
“The positive impact of two successive beer duty reductions has been extraordinary for this British industry and I am delighted that Brandon Lewis’ dedication and hard work has been rightly recognised with the chairman’s award.”
