Redmond Featured in MSNBC Originals Video About Kelp Beer

Sarah Redmond, a marine extension agent for Maine Sea Grant at the University of Maine’s Center for Cooperative Aquaculture Research, was featured in an MSNBC Originals video about beer made with seaweed at the Marshall Wharf Brewing Co. in Belfast, Maine. When Marshall Wharf first considered brewing a beer with seaweed, Redmond provided the company with a report that outlined what is in kelp and what components will come out when it’s boiled. Redmond calls sugar kelp, which is now used in the company’s beer, the “super food from the sea” because it is a great source of iodine and calcium.
