Dr. Charlie Bamforth

Don’t miss your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel to the United Kingdom with our trip host Dr. Charlie Bamforth, “The Pope of Foam.”

Dr. Charlie Bamforth retires in December 2018 as Distinguished Professor of Malting and Brewing Sciences at the University of California, Davis. He has been in the brewing industry for more than 40 years, including a lengthy period with the legendary Bass Brewing Company. He moved from his native England to the US in 1999. Charlie has published extensively on beer and brewing –and, remarkably, even more so on football (soccer, that is). He has been described as “The world’s most knowledgeable beer researcher”, “The Beer Pope” and “The Beer Professor”. He is frequently on television, radio and podcasts, talking about beer and brewing. In October 2010 he was named as one of the 20 professors who are changing the classroom in the US (Playboy magazine). In January 2014 he was the star of the film that won the Food Awards gold medal in Hollywood for viewers’ choice, short documentary.
