This week we meet Dr Glen Fox, Senior Research Fellow, Centre for Nutrition and Food Sciences, Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation at the University of Queensland.
We often overlook what we have in our own backyard and Dr Fox is a great example. While we have regularly had international experts on the podcast, I was unaware of the research that was going on here in Australia until I met Glen at a function recently.
Dr Fox has just been named Charlie Bamforth’s successor as Anheuser-Busch Endowed Professor of Malting and Brewing Sciences at University of California, Davis.
Today we meet Glen and learn about his research in the ingredients side of the industry and what his role will be at UC Davis. Along the way we also get a little tease into some research being done into Australian plants that may be able to assume the role of hops in brewing, learn that Toowoomba once had a hop industry of sorts, the concern about the effect climate change will have on barley and brewing and also that from 2020 the University of Queensland will be including brewing training in its food science degree.
