The Iowa State University College of Engineering is sponsoring an Initiative for a Carbon Negative Economy (ICNE) in which the manufacture of products not only reduces carbon emissions, but actually draws down the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
Although the focus of this initiative is fuel production, we have been exploring the concept's application to food products as well. Among the most compelling first products is "pyro brew" -- a carbon negative beer that by its consumption provides the social good of reducing global climate change. A combination of roasted malts derived from wood or even cornstalks and delivery as draft beer (vs bottling the product) makes this possible. I am experimenting on it at both work and home before launching a national marketing campaign. Talk created by Robert Brown and Tristan Brown.

Biography: I've been brewing my own beer since I convinced my parents at the age of 15 that it would be a good learning experience and help me in my chemistry and biology classes. Over the last decade I've home-brewed countless batches of beer, operated a small winery, and conducted numerous experiments with a goal of achieving refreshment enlightenment.
Description: Hops are a key ingredient of BEER. Even though we consume hops on a regular basis, majority of us have no idea what they are, where they come from, how they're grown, and the amazing variety which they come in. I'll share my exciting journey to WA and OR, where I visited hop farmers, processing houses, and made beer with hops right from the vine.

Biography: I am passionate about craft beer. I home brew beer. I am a woman. As founder of the Arizona Chapter of Girls' Pint Out I have devoted my time to encourage women to learn about and enjoy craft beer.
Description: Centuries ago women brewed all the beer. We were alewives. Over time women became associated with beer primarily via bikinis (thanks to macro American breweries). But baby, we're back. Many of us are knowledgeable about the art of brewing and enjoy its fruits. More and more women are professional brewers. It's time to celebrate our return!
