For a chemical engineer, brewing is applied science.

Orthopedic Technician - I straighten and cast broken bones.

I'm amazed at how many brewers are engineers!

If you are an actual engineer you will have an engineering license that you took an engineering test to get.
Your licence will be governed by your states board of registration and under a separate branch with a board of registration that has engineers and surveyors on it ( usually about a two to one ratio favoring engineers ).
You will have special laws and administrative code that govern your actions and ethical behavior.
I don't think that's entirely correct either. The term you are describing would be a "Professional Engineer" or PE. I have two degrees, a job title and job description that define myself as an engineer....the term engineer is extremely ambiguous.

So, I am a Product Design Engineer and I love brewing beer. :-)

No, a license is what makes you a licensed professional engineer instead of an engineer. In most fields (especially ChemE), there's absolutely no benefit to the PE license. In fact it's almost impossible to obtain, since you need to work under another PE for 4-5 years before you can take the test. Unless you're in consulting, you'll pretty much never work with a PE ChemE. I took the EIT/FE exam just in case I wanted to go into consulting, but since I work in R+D I'll never need the PE title/license.
