Welcome to Bavaria and Beeronomics 2011!

Dear Colleagues,

Today we would like to warmly invite you to the second BEERONOMICS Conference - The Economics of Beer and Brewing 2011 - which follows up the very successful first BEERONOMICS Conference, held in Leuven/Belgium in 2009.

The second BEERONOMICS conference will take place from 21st September  to 24th September 2011 at
Kardinal-Döpfner-House in the city of Freising, near Munich. Beeronomics 2011 is organised by the Environmental Economics and Agricultural Policy Group of the Technische Universität München.

It provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and high-quality economic research related to beer and brewing activities. It covers a wide array of topics, including, but not limited to: production, trade, industrial organisation, economic history, law, economics, marketing, consumption, policy, regulation, macroeconomics, innovation economics and others.

The state of Bavaria has the highest brewery density in the world, which results from its special and longstanding brewing tradition. The
Weihenstephan brewery, which is close to Kardinal Döpfner House, should also be mentioned as being the oldest beer producing factory in the world. The Technische Universität München is one of Germany’s leading universities and offers a world famous graduate studies programme in brewing. Alongside the extraordinary location, we would also like to highlight that during the conference the world's biggest beer festival, the Oktoberfest, will be taking place in Munich.


With kind regards


Dr. Adriano Profeta and Prof. Dr. Klaus Salhofer
