Abstract: In this presentation I explain how historical events (such as the Greek and Roman conquests, the monasteries in the Middle Ages, the border line of the Holy Roman Empire, brewer guilds, local government regulations, the French Revolution, innovations,coincidences, both World Wars, the Great Depression, the microbrewery movement, etc.) have determined what tradition of beer brewing originated in different countries in continental Europe. While focusing on larger historical events, the case study Belgium is investigated.
