11. Beer and geology — you can't have one without the other

from Richard Fink, Independent Mining and Minerals Industry Advisor via LinkedIn

From Oct. 19, 2017: Thank you Dennis Waddington, P.Geo. for submitting the following article. Beer and geology are intimately intertwined. Everyone knows that geologists have a long history with beer, and consume it in copious quantities. No good field trip, geologic symposium, or Friday afternoon bull session ends without a refreshing brew (or two). What most people do not realize is that the type of beer brewed is highly dependent upon area geology. Think about the regions known for certain beers. The refreshing bitterness of an English pale ale, the clean light taste of a Czech Pilsner, or the dark, almost burnt graininess of Irish stout are tributes to the power of geology. Beer is more than 90 per cent water, and the geology through which the water percolates makes all the difference in the brew. more
