Approaching Beer from an Engineering POV

With all the bottles of Budweiser, Bud Light, Corona, and all the other brands of beer I consumed in my life, I have never thought about huge organization and context behind all these little bottles of joy. Luckily, this summer I am able to come behind the scene and take a peek into the operations of Anheuser-Busch InBev who is supplying hundreds of brands to millions of people around the world. And more importantly, I get to taste all the beer brands from AB InBev,  and that is awesome.
    Personally I have had profound experience researching 3D printing in College, and I am a big fan of Vr technologies. Now I can apply what I am passionate about to the gigantic structures of Anheuser-Busch InBev, and potentially make some improvements to the business. Specifically, I am looking into the application of various technology trends including 3D printing, AR/VR, wearable devices and geofencing on supply and logistics. The goal is to improve efficiency of the supply chain and reduce the possibility of human errors.
