Fernando Escribano, Ocean Beer Master Brewer


Fernando Escribano is an adjunct professor at the University of Maryland and holds a PhD in Animal Science from Iowa State University. He also holds a PhD in Agricultural Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Madrid, and has 25 years of research experience in the feed industry and academia.

For Fernanado the ocean is the greatest source of biodiversity, as an engineer he has developed a great interest in the ocean, biochemistry and circular economy processes in which he advocates the production of goods and services while reducing the consumption and waste of raw materials, water and energy sources. 


His current challenge is to design a zero carbon beer of which the quality and stability of the drink is maintained without losing craftsmanship in its production. It would be an environmentally sustainable beer committed to caring for the ocean.

"My goal is to brew a zero carbon beer. A beer from the ocean for the ocean. An achievable challenge but I still have a lot to learn to bring it about."
