We read that the rocks and stones in vineyards affect the taste of wine and that whisky is influenced by the rocks the water encountered on its way to the distillery. With beer, in contrast, geology is rarely mentioned. In his talk, Professor Alex Maltman will review this situation and present evidence that leads to perhaps surprising conclusions. It may even prompt you to think about your favourite tipples in a new light!
