The Judges

Mark Tetlow

My name is Mark Tetlow and I have been working in the brewing industry for the last 30 years. I am the founder of The Beer Hub - a valuable resource for brewers and publicans.

After graduating from Heriot Watt Brewing school I have worked for a number of regional brewers namely Sam Smiths, Marston and latterly at Everards where I was the Quality Assurance Manager responsible for the quality of their products from raw materials through to final beer dispense.

I have been very fortunate to work in all areas of the brewing process and also to work within the trade which I believe gives me a unique insight as not many brewers can claim to have worked from grain to glass. Part of my responsibilities have been to run Technical Services departments and in this role I have been involved in training and auditing licences to ensure that the quality products brewed in the brewery are served to the end consumers as the brewer intended.

Over the last 10 years I have run numerous Meet the Brewer events in pubs and venues across the country, speaking to over 8000 customers sharing my passion for beer, brewing and beer food matchings

In 2016 I successfully gained the Beer Academy’s Beer Sommelier award becoming the first Beer Sommelier in Leicestershire. I now train on behalf of the Beer Academy and run customer beer classes across the UK. I have also written articles for the press and spoken on the radio about beer and beer and food matchings.
