Thousands of years ago, brewers were the first chemists. To the ancient brewers, beer must have seemed like magic. Today we can understand the magic of beer through the science of chemistry. Every step in the brewing process, from malting grain to making aluminum cans has a background in chemistry. You don’t need to be a chemist to enjoy beer, but the more you know about the chemistry of beer, the more you will appreciate the real magic of beer.
