Ask A Scientist: Science of Beer: Tapping the Power of Brewer's Yeast
Whether it's a lager or ale, sour or bitter, dark or light, most beer has one thing in common: yeast. And yeast can be explained by science! Join Ask A Scientist in partnership with KQED Science, and in celebration of SF Beer Week, for a night of learning, tasting, and educational hedonism. We'll be screening and then discussing KQED's new video, Science of Beer: Tapping the Power of Brewer's Yeast, featuring GigaYeast, a commercial yeast laboratory, and Freewheel Brewery. Discover how yeast has been a player in both science history and beer production; plus spend a fun night out drinking for a really good reason. More information at askascientistsf.com.
