​Investing in Brewing Science and Supporting Research

The ASBC Research Council aims to fund scientific projects related to the brewing and/or allied industries. The Council will solicit and fund project proposals which focus on the development of brewing science advancements that result in new methods, publications, presentations, etc. to benefit the ASBC’s membership at large. 

Project grants funded typically range from $5,000–$20,000. Grants cover one year of funding, if additional funding is requested beyond a one year duration, a new proposal must be submitted and will be evaluated by the ASBC Research Council.
