About the European Brewery Convention

Beer has been brewed for thousands of years with a step-by-step evolution in the science and technology leading to what we recognise as beer today. The European Brewery Convention (EBC) has played its part in developing methods for modern quality control procedures in brewing, malting and hop laboratories throughout the world. All technical aspects of beer brewing knowledge and scientific research in brewing science have been corner stones of the activities of the EBC.

  • Commitment to knowledge creation and exchange in the fields of brewing, malting and fermentation science.
  • Dissemination of brewing knowledge and research via EBC events such as the biennial EBC congresses and symposia.
  • To maintain the output of the Analysis Committee for new and revised laboratory methods.
  • To support individual technical projects involving the brewing sector at EU level.
  • To maintain a European and global network of brewers, brewing technologists and brewing scientists and fostering cordial relationships with the American Society of Brewing Chemists (ASBC), the Master Brewers Association of the Americas (MBAA), the Brewery Convention of Japan (BCOJ) and the Institute of Brewing and Distilling (IBD).
