Let's celebrate beer making, the science of beer, the high art of beer. It's a very old process, beginning around 5000 years ago in Mesopotamia, though we probably couldn't stomach that grog today. Fortunately, from this humble past (I feel a creation myth sneaking up), a scientific process has evolved through generations of brewers.
To craft the astounding variety of modern beers, today's chemical engineers integrate the age-old and practical with science and whole system thinking. This fraternity of hop-dusted, brewer alchemists all consider the process, the supply chain, waste management, environmental and health implications, as well as economics before a modern beer graces a brewpub chalkboard. Watch and enjoy how this science and art is practiced today.
