Science in the Pub: How to build a beer and a brewery
Simon Rundle tells us the story of Ivybridge Brewing Company, a social enterprise to help people with learning difficulties.
This year, Simon left the world of academia and a career as an Aquatic Biologist to take up the full-time task of running this social enterprise brewery that works to address the disability employment gap. At this event he’ll talk about how his background as a scientist has helped him grapple with the task of ‘building’ and brewing beers, including how understanding the science of the four beers’ cornerstone ingredients (grain, hops, yeast and water) has been key to the success of his project.
The event, upstairs at the Anchor, is free but do buy a drink from the pub.
