Meet the beer nerds behind Science Made Beerable


Kelsey Picard

Kelsey is a beer obsessed plant scientist whose love of beer extends beyond just drinking it!

From the sexual biology of hop plants, to the sugar chemistry changes in a germinating barley grain, plant science plays a huge role in the production of beer. Kelsey enjoys a fruity sour or a resinous IPA and is fascinated by the complex flavours that can be produced with just four ingredients.

Matthew Fielding

Matt is a PhD Student studying ornithology at UTAS and a massive beer nerd. When he's not in the Tasmanian wilderness behind a pair of binoculars, he's likely got a hopped-up craft beer in his hands. His interest in brewing science started after he plunged into the world of home-brewing, which uncovered the incredible complexity behind that delicious liquid we call beer.
