John Westlake is an award-winning member of the British Guild of Beer Writers and back in the early 1970s, a founder member of the Nottingham Branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA). He has travelled widely, having visited well over 150 countries where beer is brewed, and since retiring from the financial services industry almost two years ago, he has been able to devote more time to his passion for beer in all its many and varied styles, its promotion as our national drink, its responsible consumption and its ability to be just as good as wine - sometimes even better - as an accompaniment to food. He has contributed to a number of international books about beer and is a regular columnist for the highly acclaimed 'Nottingham Drinker' magazine.
