The Trust is currently in the process of reviewing its membership structure with a view to making it more relevant to the needs of individuals with an interest in brewing heritage in general and also to the modern brewing community. This review is taking place during a period of significant change while the Trust attempts to help manage the complex process of moving the artefacts and archives to new homes in Burton upon Trent.

Why are funds needed?

The existing collection contains priceless and unique documents as well as extensive visual material (photographs, maps, videos etc.), with some in need of repair and restoration. Irrespective of where the artefacts are located, they still need to be maintained, particularly the larger ones where volunteers have traditionally provided their skills to keep them in tip-top condition. The archives also need to be kept in environmental conditions suitable to their particular needs and in protective covers as appropriate.
