Western Brewer Journals Digial Archives
The Beer Institute in Washington, D. C. has agreed to loan the National Brewery Museum Library their rare complete collection of Western Brewer Journals from 1876 to 1960. These rare Journals will be digitally archived and made available to ABA members and the public at the library.

The Western Brewer Journal archival project has turned out to be a much larger & expensive project than originally forecasted.

The number of pages to be archived is more than double the estimate at the start of the project. ABA has currently archived over 250,000 pages, 66 of the 85 years. We recently discovered the Beer Institute does not have all the years of the Journals so we have to find a source for the missing years.

ABA is considering software for viewing all online media including the Journals in a format other than a PDF. The software must be comparable with our database system and one that most of our members can access.

The end of 2017 is our current estimate to have the Journals online and available to the membership.
