Following a brief presentation of the history of beer and fermented beverages, the lecture will focus on a consideration of the impacts of science and chemistry on the brewing industry, as well as how problems in the brewhouse have led to discovery and scientific development. The latter part of the lecture will detail the ongoing need for well-trained scientists in the brewing and fermentation industries.

The Austin Lecture
The Austin Lecture is funded by the Robert B. and Floretta F. Austin Memorial Endowment, which was established by the family and friends of the Austins in 1987. Bob Austin graduated from the University of Idaho with a degree in metallurgical engineering in 1934. He was a long-time supporter of the university and a founder of the College of Mines and Earth Resources Constituent Alumni Association (C2A2). All three of the Austins’ children earned degrees from the University of Idaho, and two grandchildren are alumni as well.
