We look after 1/2 million historic items celebrating 250 years of British brewing and we want to make them visible via an online catalogue.

by National Brewery Heritage Trust in Burton On Trent, England, United Kingdom

Who we are

The National Brewery Heritage Trust is a registered charity run by volunteers. We support a unique collection of objects and documents from the UK's brewing industry which are stored and cared for at the National Brewery Centre in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire.

What we need

We want people to enjoy our brewing heritage but with only 1% of 500,000 items on display it is currently difficult for anyone interested in beer and brewing heritage to have any visibility of the extent and breadth of the information and materials that exist. Our aim is accessibility. We want the general public - including beer lovers, social and industrial historians, students and schoolchildren, teachers and academics, transport enthusiasts, brewing professionals and beer writers - to be able to see what's here so they can use our collection for research, education and general interest. 

The cost

Our exciting project will develop an on-line catalogue of all the items in the collection. The project will cost £50,000 and £30,000 has already been raised in donations from individuals and organisations.   

How you can help

Now, its your round!  We're seeking your support to raise the remaining £20,000 and make sure we can say shine a light on Britain's brewing heritage and giving it the exposure it deserves.  

Why its important

No other collection of this breadth and quality exists. It is unrivaled in its comprehensive coverage of the scope and impact of the UK brewing industry - literally from grain to glass - as well as for the sheer amount, as well as range and variety of material covering some 250 years and embracing dozens of brewing companies and hundreds of pub companies from across the UK. It provides an insight into the impact that beer has had on the British way of life over the centuries - in both rural and urban communities and at all levels of society.  

As well as ultimately improving access to the cultural, social and economic role of British beer and brewing and building pride at a national and local level, the process of cataloguing the collection will also create volunteering opportunities for local people, providing valuable experience and building skills that could help them into future employment and training.
