The Voice of the European Beer Consumer



The European Beer Consumers Union (EBCU) was formed in Bruges in May 1990 by 3 founding beer consumer organisations, representing Belgium, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

They have since been joined by similarly-minded national consumer groups from Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Poland, Sweden and Switzerland.
