Historic Brew Con - Manchester

5th & 6th August - 2024

A two day conference aiming to bring together beer and brewing historians, writers, brewers and enthusiasts from across the world to share knowledge and experience. With talks covering all eras from Prehistory to Prohibition set in one of the worlds greatest beer cities with its own history of brewing going back to the Industrial Revolution and beyond.

Speakers will be presenting on various topics covering both the technical and the social aspects of brewing's history.

It's not just about the theory, a large part of the conference is the conversation, so we've arranged the talks to allow ample time between them for quick catch-ups, along with a longer lunch break for more in depth chats. And what better place to talk about brewing's history than at our own conference bar stocked with recreations of historic and heritage beer styles!
