The study of beer and beer-making, including the role particular ingredients play in the brewing process. A zythologist is a student and connoisseur of beer who possess knowledge of ingredients, pouring techniques and beer pairings. From Greek zythos (beer) + logos (study).
The waiter won't know which beer to pair with a roasted rack of lamb. I've been studying zythology and I think you should have the lager.
