Now entering its fourth year, Tryanuary is a nationwide campaign to encourage support for the beer industry throughout January. The brainchild of Mancunian beer blogger, Andy Heggs and brewery owners, Stuart Swann and Shane Swindells, Tryanuary was created to encourage beer fans to support independent breweries, pubs, bars and other retailers during what can be a challenging month for the industry. Since its inception in 2015, the campaign has garnered huge support.

Spearheading this year’s campaign is Tom Stapley, who is best known for Craft Beer Hour; a weekly gathering on Twitter that embraces all aspects of the industry and showcases many independent brewers.

Tom’s vision to enable the continued growth of the campaign involves coordinating a nationwide team, each championing the beer on offer in their local area. “A campaign like this needs local people to galvanise local businesses,” said Tom, “it needs people all over the country to celebrate the beer on their doorstep and share that with the nation through the different mediums of Tryanuary.”

Following an overwhelmingly successful recruitment drive for volunteers, for the first time, in 2018, the campaign will be advocated by an ever-growing team of over sixty beer lovers and enthusiasts who will have exclusive access to the Tryanuary website and social media profiles. Although the campaign will be driven using the wide reaches of social media, the ultimate aim is to inspire people to show support for their local enterprises.
