Raise your beer IQ with Bamforth

By From page A3 | May 22, 2014

Yolo Basin Foundation offers an evening with Charlie Bamforth, a world-renowned professor of brewing science at UC Davis, on Saturday, June 14, at 7 p.m.

“Up Your Beer IQ” will be a memorable event focused on beer appreciation and education. Guests will gather in the back yard of Susanne Rockwell and Brian Sway to sample a variety of beers along with other refreshments.

Bamforth will endeavor to convince the guests, through talk and tasting, that beer is far more interesting, far more healthy, far more sophisticated and far more difficult to produce than other alcoholic beverages.

According to Bamforth, when consumed in moderation, beer has quite a few health benefits, including the essential trace element silicon. He adds, “Beer is the richest source of silicon in our diet. It’s good for your bones. Granola is the next best source. You choose.”

“Up Your Beer IQ” costs $70 per person and all proceeds will go toward Yolo Basin Foundation’s wetlands education programs.  Registration is online at www.yolobasin.org. For more information, call Michael Herrera at 530-758-1018.
