Give A Listen: “Crafting The Perfect Pint”


From Science Friday’s website:

Oregon has 171 breweries operating out of 70 different cities, and Portland boasts more breweries per capita than any other city in the country. Two Oregon brew experts—Leon Fyfe, a microbiologist with the Craft Brew Alliance, and Ben Tilley, owner of Agrarian Ales—pour over the science of craft brewing, discussing how yeast, hops, malt, and water come together to create the perfect pint.

I caught this interview with these two gentlemen on WPR yesterday while driving my dumb dog to the dog park for some exercise, and I found it quite informative. Give the podcast a listen here, and let me know what you think. A little knowledge never hurt anybody, right? Plus, listening to Ira Flatow drinking beer is just plain adorable.
