Throughout the world, people are researching every aspect of beer and brewing. This week, we get nerdy, but I assure you, it’s fun!

Harmonie Bettenhausen, Director of Hartwick College Center for Craft Food & Beverage, is one of those people meticulously researching craft beverages. She takes us through the research she’s worked on for her Ph.D., specifically how barley contributes to flavor.
