What: Brews for the Masses: The Carlsberg story
When: January 16,[masked]:00 PM

Studio City, CA 91604
Henry Abrash will provide a brief history of the Carlsberg Laboratory in Copenhagen, Denmark.
"In 1875, J. C, Jacobsen, founder of the Carlsberg Brewery, established the Carlsberg Laboratory to develop ?as fully a scientific basis as possible for the operation of malting, brewing and fermentation.? Believing that scientific advances were for the general good rather than for personal gain, he specified that none of the results of the laboratory were to be kept secret. This meant the brewery derived no financial advantage from some of its major discoveries."
More details and the results of this forward looking way of doing business wil be presented. So come learn a bit more about that wonderful brew and enjoy some while you're at it at the first Science Cafe in the San Fernando Valley for 2010!
I'll be there with the black Einstein hat!
