TO THE BEERONOMICS SOCIETY!
The very first
Beeronomics event in May 2009, the
Leuven Beeronomics Conference I, turned out to
be a great success. Since then, Beeronomics has been
very much alive. A
Beeronomics LinkedIn group
was set up to allow Beeronomics enthusiasts to stay
in touch. In June 2010, many Beeronomics members
actively participated in the Beeronomics sessions at
of the American Association of Wine Economists in
Davis, California. In addition, the number of
publications on the economics of beer and brewing
has been increasing and we received several
expressions of interest for (hosting) future
conferences and seminars.
To coordinate all these
Beeronomics ideas and events, we proudly launched
The Beeronomics Society, an
international non-profit association of scholars and
professionals analyzing the economics of beer and
brewing, in August 2011.
In September 2011 Klaus
Salhofer, Adriano Profeta and their colleagues from
the Technische Universität München organized the
Freising Beeronomics Conference II. Also Beeronomics
II proved to be an inspiring event and stimulated
many scientific and social interactions. The website
of the Freising Beeronomics conference with the full
program and links to all contributions is still
online and can be found
In November 2011 the
Center for Wine Economics and the Robert Mondavi
Institute for Wine and Food Science at UC Davis
organized a half-day
on “Beeronomics: The Economics of Beer and Brewing.”
The most recent
Beeronomics event was the Third Beeronomics
Conference, organized by Ignazio Cabras, David
Higgins and their colleagues at York University. All
information relating to the conference can be found
