Laura Hadland

Laura Hadland stepped away from a successful career as Senior Curator for a large local authority museum service to become a full time writer in 2017. She writes regular columns for CAMRA’s What’s Brewing and Vineyard Magazine and her first book, 50 Years of CAMRA, was named the Best Beer Book in the World 2022. Laura’s work often uses historical insight into beer, pubs and brewing to highlight their contemporary relevance.

Laura lives in Shropshire with her family and two geriatric cats. When not writing, she is printmaking or taking photos and has recently illustrated a number of her published articles.
