What is zythology?

Do you really know?

What is zythology? Thanks for asking! 

With bars and pubs open for business again, there’s plenty more opportunity for each of us to discover our inner zythologist. The cool-sounding word zythology derives from the Greek zythos, for beer, and logos, for study.

Wait a minute! Are you saying there’s such a thing as the study of beer?

That’s right! The field is also known as beerology, but it’s about far more than just putting away pint after pint of lager. Beer is actually the oldest alcoholic beverage in the world. Evidence of its existence goes back to the 5th millennium BC. So humans have been brewing and drinking beer for a long time.

However, a lot of the knowledge we’ve acquired around beer is much more recent. It’s a complex and sophisticated beverage. In the same way that an oenologist knows everything about wine, zythologists are real beer connoisseurs.

Sounds like a fun job! So what do zythologists actually do? Where can I sign up? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions!
