Why is wine considered to be refined, sophisticated, and high-brow, whereas beer is supposedly simple and low-brow?

Bamforth is a master brewer — one of the best. He is the Anheuser-Busch Chair of Brewing and Malting at UC Davis, and head of the Food Sciences Department. But Grape vs. Grain isn’t all science. Bamforth explores the culture behind both beer and wine, as well how they’re made and health benefits, with liberal doses of history and trivia to boot.

The brewery is on Potrero Hill at the intersection of Mariposa and De Haro. Come for a rousing discussion and stay for the signing.
