How Beer Created Society, Trade, Microbiology, Basically Everything

More than 5,000 years ago, in ancient Mesopotamia, human beings enjoyed a new invention of biotechnology, beer! Over the millennia, humans have tirelessly worked to understand, improve and perfect the beer-making process. Along the way, we have discovered new fields of study including enzymology, microbiology, biochemistry and molecular biology. Today, the study of fermentation is hardly complete and many cutting-edge technologies owe their existence to a beverage that has captivated the human imagination for thousands of years. Presented by Mike Mallozzi, Co-founder and President of Borderlands Brewing, Research Associate, UA Animal and Comparative Biomedical Sciences. Following the talk, join us for: March for Science SoAZ Science Trivia: Team Competition for Fun and Prizes!
