Lotte Peplow is a Certified Cicerone, accredited Beer Sommelier, international beer judge and beer writer who conducts talks and tastings about American craft beer, organises events and is a keen advocate of beer and food pairing. She co-authored her first book ‘World’s Greatest Beers’, published by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) in the UK in August 2022. Lotte first became involved with the Brewers Association, a trade association representing small and independent American craft brewers, in 2006 when a ground-breaking beer and food pairing event in London, UK which she helped organise led to a long and fruitful relationship with the Association. She continued working for the Brewers Association on an ad hoc basis until around 2013/2014 when her role began to ramp up and in 2019 was awarded the title of American Craft Beer Ambassador for Europe. Her role is to identify opportunities for international expansion of American craft beer, educate and inform the trade and industry about American craft beer and to raise awareness about the quality and diversity of beer styles from America's small and independent craft brewers. Based in London, UK, Lotte is also a member of CAMRA’s London tasting panel.
