Low- and no-alcohol beverages present their own set of issues and problems for production and consumption—from sanitation to pasteurization to regulation. If you have dealt with these issues and problems, we want to hear from you.

The editors of Technical Quarterly (TQ) are calling for original research, reviews, best practices, and essays for publication in the 2024 2nd Quarter Focus Issue on Low-Alcohol and No-Alcohol Brewing Technology. We are interested in all the tips, techniques, formulations, and technologies that facilitate production of these beers using mechanical and/or biological methods. 

Article proposals are requested by February 28, 2024, and initial drafts/outlines are due by March 30, 2024. Final drafts are due by May 15, 2024. 

We invite you to submit article proposals, outlines, and/or drafts to Focus Issue Guest Editors Glen Fox, Phil Markowski, and Richard Preiss​ or to TQ Editor-in-Chief John Palmer. Generally, we are looking for articles that are 2,000–5,000 words, although shorter and longer articles are acceptable with quality content. Each submission should include a title, an abstract (summary, max. 100 words), and a short author biography (max. 100 words).

Final Submission Deadline: May 15​, 2024

Author Benefits

A focus issue offers significant benefits to authors, helping to raise their profile in the industry. A single-topic issue gives Master Brewers members an opportunity to publish alongside the related work of peers to highlight progress in the focus area. The upcoming TQ Focus Issue will be widely promoted and is expected to be highly read, giving authors maximum exposure. Articles receive DOIs and will be submitted to Crossref, allowing citation connectivity with other journals.
