Event Summary
BEER CULTURE SUMMIT
Organized in collaboration with the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History 
and in partnership with the Chicago Humanities Festival

 

The first conference of its kind, the Beer Culture Summit brings an ever-growing community of researchers, professionals, and everyday enthusiasts to the table for a pint and a discussion. It is a new public and scholarly gathering dedicated to exploring the ways that global beer history can fire the imagination, advance our understanding of the past, and help us grow.

This conference showcases cutting-edge research, beer-focused public projects, and industry wisdom in accessible spaces like museums, breweries, and taverns. Our audience is everyone—scholars, professionals, and the public—and our partners range from breweries to cultural organizations to local businesses. Our mission is simple: to enhance our cultural understanding of beer openly and candidly, in a friendly atmosphere fit for the world’s most important drink.
