The primary research focus at UC Davis reflects the changing needs of the brewing industry (and related industries)
The specializations cover issues of real pertinence to maltsters and brewers.
Go to the “Who am I?” page for details of all the relevant papers and articles published in the various Bamforth labs on either side of the Atlantic since 1975.
Charlie Bamforth retired from campus at the end of 2018, so his research days are essentially done (apart from ongoing collaborations with other laboratories).
