Biography
Christopher L. Brown couldn’t have predicted his research and professional work in the endocrinology and development of larval fishes would segue into a passion for the science of high-quality home-brewing—but it did. His experience cultivating delicate marine microorganisms provided an ideal foundation for learning how to grow and nurture yeasts for beer production. After becoming a science-minded brewmaster, Dr. Brown established and taught an upper-division brewing science course for Florida International University’s School of Hospitality Management.
