Volcanic eruptions are one of the most spectacular phenomena we see on this planet. Through the medium of beer, I will explain the journey of the gas bubbles which drive these eruptions, from birth, to eruption at the surface. I will explore how we investigate these bubbles, by using state-of-the-art monitoring equipment to measure gas output and computer models to simulate gas flow. Fully unlocking the secrets of this journey is an essential future goal in volcanology, where any progress made will play a key part in aiding eruption forecasting.
