The Zythologist

The Zythologist is a science-based brewery and analytical testing company. This means we not only make unique combinations of flavour molecules in beer but also help craft breweries improve their beers and processes.

Out of the lab and into industry

The story of The Zythologist begins with the Engineering student team, Monash BrewLab.

Founded by Monash Engineering PhD students Daniel Rojas Sanchez and Gina Pacheco Arredondo in 2018, the lab is Australia’s first student-led nano-brewery.

“We created BrewLab to learn more about beer – the processes, the compounds and to develop all these crazy flavouring ideas we had. In fact, one of our first creations was a Michelada inspired tomato beer,” recalls Gina.

In the lab, students apply their learnings in brewing science and process engineering to craft a range of beer and kombucha products.

Daniel and Gina led a multidisciplinary team of 50 Monash students who shared a passion for quality brewing. And soon forged industry partnerships with Keg King and Grain & Grape.

After completing their doctorate program, they didn’t want to simply move on. They wanted to build something bigger.

“We wanted to pursue our dream. To take all we had learned and created in the lab, and bring it to industry,” says Daniel.

In 2021, together with Shivam Tandon, they created The Zythologist – a science-based brewery and an analytical testing consultancy for craft breweries.
