Lifetime Achievement: Lion Brewery, Ash
Mike will be celebrating his 39th anniversary at the Lion Brewery in August 2019 and has, during that time, put his heart and soul into running the pub. He has worked relentlessly over the years to ensure his pub remains at the heart of the community, and has helped raise an absolutely staggering £200,000 for various charities through a number of events.
Mike’s sheer passion for life means that the Lion Brewery has become more than just a place to drink, he has made certain that everyone is always made to feel welcome and as a regular award winner, Mike believes that being part of the community is key to his success.
