Kelsey Picard - Beer is a Conversation
This week we talk the science of beer with PhD Candidate Kelsey Picard, one of the founders of Science Made Beerable.
Kelsey’s scientific background isn’t in beer, but she is a beer lover and her developing love for it as a consumer tickled her scientific curiosity, and in doing so she has become an enthusiastic advocate for sharing the science of making it.
In this conversation we talk about what fired her interest, the challenges in communicating about science – and beer – and whether brewers are great at communicating about the things they make (spoiler alert, often they’re not) and also what can the brewing industry learn from science in a range of areas, including inclusion.
It’s a great chat about the magic that underpins brewing, and how we can communicate that to fire other people’s passions from someone who communicates it very well.
This episode of Beer is a Conversation is presented by HPA. Australia’s leading hop grower offers a huge range of Aussie, international and innovative hop products that can help breweries of all sizes become more efficient, more sustainable, and more profitable.
