About the Author

Natalya Watson studied microbiology at UCLA with a desire to save the world from infectious disease. She learned that while not the best at "doing" science, she had a knack for making complex scientific concepts accessible and engaging for non-scientists. When she discovered the wide world of beer, she never looked back. Once qualified as a Certified Cicerone® and accredited Beer Sommelier, she began hosting educational talks and tastings for fellow beer-lovers in London to make sense of brewing science and giving people an even deeper appreciation for how their favourite beers are made. An American in London, she's on the board of British Guild Beer Writers, is Marketing Manager for Duvel Moortgat UK and has recently launched her podcast, Beer With Nat.
