Brewer donates $1 million to UC Davis beer science program


SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - The University of California Davis is using $1 million donated by a Texas-based brewer to buy new equipment for its beer science program.

The Sacramento bee reports (http://bit.ly/1SkjLMQ) Mexican immigrant Carlos Alvarez says in a university news release that opportunities in America have enabled him to donate to the education of future craft brewers.

A biochemical engineering graduate from Mexico's Monterrey Institute of Technology, Alvarez is a former Modelo export manager who led the launch of Corona in the United States.

Gambrinus Co. has a brewery each in Berkeley, Calif., Portland, Ore., and Shiner, Texas.

UC Davis started offering beer education in 1959. Since 2011, the program has been housed at the Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science.

Alvarez's donation funds the purchase of brewing and lab equipment.

Good Samaritans help stop wrong-way driver on I-5


Two good Samaritans helped stop a wrong-way driver on Interstate 5 Thursday afternoon, the California Highway Patrol said.

Two men -- Stephen L. Riddick, of Fair Oaks, and Jose G. Garcia, of Woodland – used their cars to get in front of a wrong-way driver, who was going southbound in the northbound lanes of I-5 just north of the Yolo Bypass and south of Woodland. CHP said two men helped move the car into the center divider and removed the keys from the ignition.

The driver was identified at 74-year-old Barbara Fields, who was reported missing from Manteca. When CHP arrived at the scene, Fields was somewhat disoriented. She was taken to UC Davis Medical Center for treatment. CHP said Fields was not under the influence of alcohol.
