Funding for medical research

The BBPA made a significant contribution to the setting up of the Alcohol Education and Research Council (AERC).

Between 1970 and 1993 funding for research was provided through the Brewers' Society Medical Advisory Group (MAG). This amounted to some £60,000 per annum - in excess of £1 million over the years.

Over the last few years the British Beer & Pub Association has set aside more than £6 million to fund future independent medical research into alcohol and its impacts in the UK and Europe.
