NPR’s Science Friday had an interview this week with Charlie Bamforth, talking about beer and his latest book, “Beer Is Proof God Loves Us: Reaching for the Soul of Beer and Brewing.” Bamforth is the Anheuser-Busch Endowed Professor of Brewing Science at the University of California at Davis, and was my professor when I took the short course on brewing several years ago. He’s also trained many of the brewers working in Bay Area breweries today. In the segment, entitled Searching For Science In A Glass of Beer, Charlie takes questions and discusses the brewing process more generally. There’s also a transcript of the talk on their website. Enjoy.
