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 the conference
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
