Yesterday's Food & Wine section featured a Q&A interview with Charlie Bamforth, the UC Davis professor of malting and brewing sciences who was recently named "brewmaster general" by Playboy magazine. The good professor has a new book out, "Beer Is Proof God Loves Us: Reaching for the Soul of Beer and Brewing," a tome that probes both the philosophical and business aspects of beer.
On Monday, Bamforth will hold a lecture and book signing at UC Davis' Silverado Vineyards Sensory Theater, located in the Robert Mondavi Institute Sensory Building. We're told that a few seats are remaining, so put down that pint glass and register here. The cost is $35, $20 for UC Davis staff, students, faculty and Friends of the Robert Mondavi Institute. The event runs from 5:30 p.m. - 7:40 p.m.
