The Brewers Association (BA) is pleased to announce that proposals for funding 2017 research are now being accepted. Applications are being collected online until July 31, 2016.
An overview document is available that walks applicants through the online form, and allows applicants to gather the necessary information prior to beginning their application.
In the past, successful proposals included an industry-wide scope and usually focus on:
- Draught Beer Quality
Proposals that focus on malting barley or hop cultivation in a many-state region are far more likely to succeed than single state proposals.
The BA awarded $403,000 in grants supporting 22 total research projects in 2016. Current year projects focus on hops (7 grants), malting barley (12), sustainability (2) and safety (1).
