The Chemistry of Beer Quality

There are so many variables to control during the process of turning malt, hops, yeast and water into vats of beer, it’s amazing that brewers can create a consistent tasting product no matter where you’re at in the world. But with a lot of chemistry and some careful monitoring, beer brewers can create a quality product year-round, worldwide.

Charles Bamforth is an Anheuser-Busch Endowed Professor of Malting and Brewing Sciences at UC Davis who knows a thing or two about beer. He’ll be leading a discussion about beer quality and the chemistry behind it at City Hall Tavern in Davis Wednesday, August 12. He’s also teaching a one-day class about appreciating beer at UC Davis this Saturday.
