Blog: Olly WehringAlan Lodge 1982 – 2012

Olly Wehring | 21 February 2012

Many of you in our industry – certainly those of you operating here in the UK – will have met the news editor at peer-publication The Drinks Business, Alan Lodge. Over the last three years, I bumped into Alan on an almost weekly basis at various drinks events in London. Indeed, I could pretty much guarantee I'd see him, due to his reputation of attending the openings of envelopes.

Alan passed away over the weekend, suffering a brain haemorrhage. He was 29.

The Drinks Business' editor, Patrick Schmitt, has written an eloquent obituary for Alan, which can be found here.

Goodbye, Alan. Thank you for the fun times and thank you for the laughter. I'll toast you with an Ardbeg tonight.
