This show takes on the frothy subject of beer, and explores the science, culture, and history behind the suds.
First, Bob and Michal go back to school--beer school--and they learn a few things about what makes beer so tasy.
Then we talk to Patrick E. McGovern, a beer and wine archaeologist, and Roger Barth, a chemist, professor, and home brewer. They discuss the science behind beer, how modern craft breweries can help us understand ancient beers, and how technology has allowed us to drink like an ancient king. They also discuss the spiritual side of beer and the role beer has played in human evolution.
