Dr. Max Nelson, University of Windsor

While no beers from antiquity survive for us to sample, Dr. Max Nelson illuminated the ways to access beer from the ancient world: by examining the written evidence, by studying the results of new methods of analyzing ancient containers, and also by observing various old brewing techniques still in use today. While beer may have still be recognizably beer in antiquity, Dr. Nelson suggests that tastes - and beer - have changed dramatically over millenia.
