The Brewers' Society was formed in 1904 as a result of the amalgamation of the Country Brewers' Society, the London Brewers' Society and the Burton Brewers' Society. Its aim was to promote the interests of the brewing trade.
In 1994 the Brewers' Society changed its name and expanded its remit to become the Brewers' and Licensed Retailers' Association (BLRA) - an organisation that represented owners of pubs and other beer retailers, as well as brewers. In 2001 the BLRA was renamed the British Beer and Pub Association.
