Put Britain’s Brewing Heritage Online

The National Brewery Heritage Trust is a registered charity run by volunteers.  We support a unique collection of objects and documents from the Britain’s brewing industry which are stored and cared for at the National Brewery Centre in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire.  We’re launching a crowdfunding campaign to help make our unique collection more accessible online – and we need your help please.

We want people to enjoy our collection but currently only 5000 of our half a million items are on display at the National Brewing centre in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire.  That means 99% of the collection is hidden from view in our archives, making it impossible for anyone interested in British beer, pubs and brewing to see and use what we’ve got.

So we’re developing an on-line catalogue which will enable many more people to enjoy this unique record of our brewing heritage and to appreciate the cultural, social and economic role of our industry.

The project will cost £50,000 and £30,000 has already been raised in donations from generous individuals and organisations.  The crowdfunding campaign to raise the remaining £20,000 runs from 29th May – 23rd July.

To support our campaign please go to the site, watch the video, see the rewards, make a donation and pass the link on to any other individual or organisation you think could help.

The campaign is supported by Nick Hewer, Countdown presenter, former adviser to Lord Sugar and former Parliamentary Beer Group ‘Beer Drinker of the Year’. See his message of support on
