Jessica Mason is Drinks & Content Editor of The Publican’s Morning Advertiser and loves nothing more than enjoying good beer in decent pubs. Formerly a publisher before becoming a drinks journalist, she accrued 17 years’ experience in the publishing world which involved working on consumer glossies like ELLE, RED and New Woman, teen magazines such as Smash Hits and ELLE Girl as well as publishing games and film titles including INDIE, DVD Monthly and RRP. During that time, she was also involved in the UK launch of cult magazine VICE and, when it first bought the pub The Old Blue Last in London’s Shoreditch, spent a great deal of time whiling away the evenings, listening to bands, pint in hand. For the past six years, she has worked as a journalist for a range of titles including just-drinks, The Morning Advertiser, Frontier and The Publican before heading up features at the newly merged pub trade title. Judging experience includes: The Publican Awards, The Publican Food & Drink Awards, The Great British Pub Awards, Society of Independent Brewers Awards and The National Drink Awards. She is also a contributing author for the book 1001 Whiskies You Must Try Before You Die.
