On 12 March 2011 the Brewery History Society organised
a day conference at the National Brewery Centre (formerly
the Bass Museum) in Burton-upon-Trent to mark the successful
completion of a project commissioned and funded by English
Heritage as part of its Historic Environment Enabling
Programme. The projects objectives were:
- to provide up to date information on all the operating
'historic breweries', generally pre-War II.
- to compile a comprehensive list of historic brewing
buildings identifying any plant of particular interest.
- to undertake a national assessment on the industry
identifying sites worthy of designation and those 'at risk'
- to explore avenues to provide a secure future for
photographic and drawn archives of the industry.
This special issue of Brewery History presents printed
versions of the main contributions to the event.
