Beer is one of the oldest and most popular beverages known, with archeological evidence indicating it to be at least 7000 years old. In the intervening centuries, beer production has become a multi-billion dollar industry dominated by large multinational corporations. More recently, attention has turned to smaller craft breweries that cultivate a more artisanal approach. Proper preparation of both craft beers and high volume macro- brews requires a deep understanding of the available ingredients and processes in order to develop new brands and ensure batch-to-batch quality.
