Announcing our new beer writer!

3 February 2010

Hey folks!

I am proud to announce a new staff member here at Ithacork.

Richard Pliny

From his first sip of beer, Richard Pliny was captured by the fizzy drink’s allure. Through years of research and experimentation he has sought to understand beer’s secrets, as indeed he still does. Now an amateur brewer and professional scientist, Richard seeks to share his passion for the drink with others.

Currently, Richard is also pursuing his PhD in Chemical Engineering. He exploits his university’s resources to further his knowledge of brewing and fermentation whenever he can, drawing heavily on the strong food science program. Like me, Richard has found that a basic understanding of biology and chemistry greatly elucidates the beermaking process.

Richard’s first post, fittingly on an Ithaca beer, will go up Friday in what will hopefully be a weekly beer column for you hopheads out there.

Please join me in welcoming Richard to the team.
