Research Council​​​

Giving Back to Brewing Science

The newly formed ASBC Research Council aims to fund scientific projects related to the brewing and/or allied industries. The Council will solicit 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 topics include, but are not limited to, research on raw materials (malt, hops, yeast, water, adjuncts), fermentation, flavor, and stability. Projects can also focus on development or optimization of analytical/sensory/microbiological methods of analysis. Project awards range from $5,000–$25,000.  

Grants are to be awarded to support academic research in brewing science that is conducted at a not-for-profit academic institution (domestic and international). Principal investigators and students will be urged to apply.
