UC DAVIS ANNOUNCEMENT

Researcher presents on benefits of beer at Tahoe Center for Environmental Science

Beer is the basis of modern civilization. Without it, humankind would have not established static communities. Without it, we would not have the modern pharmaceutical industry. With beer, we have the world’s favorite alcoholic beverage – the drink of moderation.

The science and technology of making beer is complex yet astonishing. And my! What a feast of beers there is worldwide, from the ultimate breakfast beer of hefeweissen to Thomas Hardy’s Ale, once called the Ultimate Book at Bedtime beer.

And, when consumed in moderation, beer makes a directly benefi cial contribution to the diet, from countering atherosclerosis and osteoporosis to clearing out the kidneys and benefiting the bowel.

And its fun, as this lecture will show.
