Confirmed speaker – Dr. Alex Berezow: beer, alcohol and health in perspective

There is a lot of false information going around on the internet and in the media about nutrition and health. This is definitely also the case for alcohol. What can we still believe? Dr. Alex Berezow is a professional science writer and Vice President of Scientific Affairs for the American Council on Science and Health: a consumer advocacy non-profit whose mission is to promote evidence-based science and debunk junk. He will tell us more about this during the Beer and Health Symposium, and will put the topic of beer, alcohol and health into perspective. 

Confirmed speaker – Prof. Jäger: alcohol-free beer as alternative sports drink?

Confirmed speaker – Dr. Patrycja Kupnicka: what kind of nutrients are in beer?
