Some economists like studying their hobby, witness the large number of papers written on Sports Economics, and there are some quirky associations out there. Exhibit one, the American Association of Wine-Economists, where wine tastings are surely part of the agenda and studying the Economics of wine is a good excuse.

There are also the Vineyard Data Quantification Society and the Society for Quantitative Gastronomy, not surprisingly both based in France.

And now there is Beeronomics, at this point just a conference in Belgium about the Economics of beer, but I am sure the participants will find good reasons to meet on a regular basis.
