Imbibe Live 2016 beer and cider ambassador confirmed as Mark Dorber for the third year running
Beer expert Mark Dorber has been announced as the beer and cider ambassador for Imbibe Live 2016, and will be creating a programme of expert-led sessions and features aimed at on-trade buyers interested in beer and cider, in association with Imbibe.
Mark is a founding director of the Beer Academy, and in 2006 moved with his wife Sophie to Suffolk to run the highly acclaimed Anchor at Walberswick. This follows 20 years managing Parson’s Green beer hotspot The White Horse.
The programme this year will take place in the dedicated Beer & Cider Hub, with a line-up including The Thinking Drinkers taking visitors around the world in six beers and Imbibe’s Educator of the Year, Jane Peyton BS, leading a unique tasting of sour beers.
Not only that, The Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) will introduce its SIBA Superstars: award-winning British beers from across the UK.
Dorber said: ‘The craft beer and artisanal cider sectors are in serious growth, fuelled by the imagination, wit and drive of the entrepreneurs involved. Imbibe Live’s job is to reflect and help showcase this exciting period in our drinks industry.’
