Drink Beer, Expand Your Mind – Science on Tap

St. Louis, MO/February 2, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) – Beer, music, food, and science!  What could be more fun?  It may sound like an unusual combination, but the St. Louis Science Center’s Science on Tap is putting it all together for an evening of fun, learning, and of course, beer.  The event Saturday, February 11, 2017 from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. is open to members and nonmembers alike.

Food, beer, and music is a natural combination, and this Science Center tasting event won’t disappoint.  Attendees will be able to sample more than 80 different beers from more than 30 artisan and craft brewers, including local favorites Urban Chestnut, Schlafly Brewing, 4 Hands Brewery, Ferguson Brewing Company, O’Fallon Brewery, The Old Bakery Beer Company, Six Mile Bridge, and many others.  There will be product tastings from national brands like Anheuser-Busch and Samuel Adams too.

Science Center officials say it’s an opportunity to learn more about the many craft and artisan beers made in and around St. Louis as well as the brewing process itself.  This is a total sensory experience that includes hands-on activities, plus live “Science of Beer” demonstrations.  Participants will learn about the chemistry behind the brewing and bottling processes.  They can also learn about the buoyancy of their favorite brew, and even how Sam Adams Nitro technology works.

In addition to all this beer science fun, there will be food.  The Science Center’s in-house catering team, Starlite Events is partnering with some of St. Louis’ culinary favorites to create amazing small tastes at five stations.  Food partners include Clementine’s Creamery, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Naked Bacon Company, MO Beef, and Bissinger’s Handcrafted Chocolatier.

Advanced tickets are available online or at any Science Center kiosk.  The cost, which includes parking, is $45 each for members, $55 non-members, and $60 at the door.  Science on Tap is an experience in molecular gastronomy that beer lovers won’t want to miss.
