Updates to this site

Over the last week or so we have added a number of new images to our galleries. There is also a new ‘Featured Brewery’, namely Hereford & Tredegar. Also new is a Label Of The Year 2012 page, with the results of the event and detail of money raised for charity. We will hopefully upload some selected images from last year’s event  in the near future.

Further details of entries received for Label Of The Year 2013 will also appear in the near future. If you are a Twitterer, Tweep or just someone who uses Twitter, keep an eye on @Labology as info will also be published by ‘bird of mouth’ or is that ‘mouth of bird’. Either way check back regularly.

LOTY 2013 Off & Running

Despite some mad last minute updating, we have now launched the 30th LOTY event.

Around 1200 brewing companies have been emailed with an invitation to take part. The only

ones not contacted are those we do not have an email address for or they are so new we have

not yet heard about them. If you know of any new ones email us via the ‘Getting in Touch’ page

LOTY 2013 Judging Meeting

Once again this year’s judging will be held at The Brunswick Inn, near Derby rail station on Saturday 14th September.

Meeting starts at 12.00. Buffet available. Reserve you place by contacting our Treasurer via our Getting In Touch page

Label Of The Year 2013

We will be launching LOTY 2013 in the next few days or so. This will be our 30th LOTY and we hope to add a significant amount to our total of £ 56,115 raised for UK charities to date.

All brewing companies will receive an emailed invitation to take part. This year in addition to our normal categories of Standard Label, Commemorative Label, Set of  Labels & POS material, we plan to make a couple of special awards to commemorate our 30th anniversary. Perhaps along the lines of best politically incorrect label, funniest label and maybe just something that is topical at the time of judging.
