Beer and the process of brewing stand at the origins and centre of the key developments of the “West”, its cultural institutions and scientific developments. This lecture/seminar class will take a interdisciplinary approach to the study of the relation between brewing history, science and culture by focusing on primary texts along with in-class reconstructions of particular experiments and activities associated with the history of brewing.
