Science Presentation

We wouldn’t be here today without beer. Our ancestors drank it and survived because converting water to beer killed pathogenic organisms. By creating a “healthier” beverage, beer allowed our ancestors to pass their beer-drinking genes on to us.

And beer tastes good as well as working wonders. Beer comes in so many styles and flavors, it can be difficult to know how to choose. Luckily, Dr. Charlie Bamforth is here to guide us.
