    Message from the Technical Committee

    A friendly reminder to all Calgary Master Brewers Conference presenters and poster authors: we gladly request your abstract submission and conference participation. With this being stated, please keep these fundamental thoughts in mind. The original vision of the Master Brewers organization founded in 1887 stated a couple key premises that continue today. They are: 1) develop by an interchange of views scientific questions relating to the brewing trade and 2) train and develop competent brewers. Today’s Master Brewers leadership and Technical Committee, through these well-thought-out events, will need all abstract submitters’ help to be aligned in these original premises and living our current vision of "United We Brew."
