The Two Brewers wins top LGBTQ+ Bar
Last week the Two Brewers in Clapham added to its haul of Boyz Awards by being named Best LGBTQ+ Pub in Britain in the John Smith’s Great British Pub Awards at a glittering event in London. Brewers general manager Jimmy was recently awarded the Lambeth Coat of Arms – an accolade reserved for significant contributors to the community, and the Brewers was recognised for ‘Outstanding Support for the Community’ by the organisers of Pride in London. On the night Jimmy said: “It’s been a long time coming but to be recognised nationally as the best in the industry really is the icing on the cake, topping off all of the other awards we’ve won. I am so incredibly proud of the whole team and our wonderful customers who make it all worthwhile.” Everyone at Boyz adds their congratulations to Jimmy and the whole team.
