Beer brewing is a convergence of diverse sciences (botany, plant physiology, chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology, chemical engineering, and more) in pursuit of a delightful product. Taught by an English-born professor listed as one of the 20 most influential in the US and who developed this course, which was voted as the most popular GE class at UC Davis.

Program Overview

The brewing of beer is not only humankind’s oldest biotechnology, it is likely the basis of static civilization and also a major factor in the survival of the species. Even if you think that is a tad exaggerated, there is absolutely no doubt that beer represents the most exquisite convergence of diverse sciences (botany, plant physiology, chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology, chemical engineering, and more) in pursuit of a product that is as complex as it is delightful. Beer has a proud history as a dietary imperative in many societies. This program considers the raw materials of brewing (primarily malt, hops, yeast and water) and how they are processed to produce drinks of consistent excellence. It explores the quality considerations of beer (foam, color, clarity, flavor, healthfulness) and investigates the nature of the global beer business. All this in the heart of England—one of the world’s historic leaders in beer and brewing.
