Nigerian Breweries host beer symposium

Nigerian Breweries Plc will hold its third beer symposium next Thursday in Lagos.

The one-day symposium scheduled for June 30, 2016 at Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos has as its theme: “Beer and Culture”.

It will focus on beer as a beverage that lubricates culture and enhances social bonding across the ages.

This year’s edition will be chaired by Mr. Donald Duke, former governor of Cross River State who was praised for his contributions to the fields of agriculture, urban development, environment, and tourism during his tenure in office.

The symposium also has a rich line up of experts and scholars in health, food and nutrition sciences who will deliver keynote lectures.

They include: Professor Innocent Ujah, a Fellow of the Medical College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and current Director-General, Nigerian Institute of Medical Research, Yaba-Lagos; Professor Bartholomew Okolo, OFR, a professor of Applied Microbiology and former Vice Chancellor, University of Nigeria, Nsukka. Others are Mr. Ted Mukoro, a veteran advertising guru and Ms. Stephanie Coker, an On Air Personality and Television Presenter.

According to the organisers, the symposium promises to be knowledge-packed and would provide an exciting insight into the global brewing industry, especially as it relates to beer, health and culture.

Not a few historians agree that beer is one of the world’s oldest recorded alcoholic beverages, with many positive qualities and benefits.

However, these benefits are little appreciated or understood by audiences who are daily overwhelmed by many unsubstantiated misconceptions about beer.

To address these wrong perceptions, Nigerian Breweries, two years ago, launched a programme – The Positive Story of Beer (PSoB) – to change the conversation and improve the reputation of the beer category by sharing what is wonderful about beer.
