SCIENCE DEMONSTRATIONS

 

Beer Geyser @ 6:30, 7:00, 8:00, 8:30 & 9:00pm | Science is all about inquiry. Like inquiring, “What happens when I bombard a 40 oz. with ultrasonic sound waves?”

 

Beer Goggles | Try to complete various tasks including putt putt golf, field sobriety tests, and driving a remote controlled car while wearing “beer goggles” to impair your vision.

 

Beer's Law of Beer | Use science to identify different types of beer from the way light passes through different samples of beers.

 

Sour Serendipity: DNA Patterns for Choosing the Best Berry | Do you love a refreshing fruit or a sour beer? It would not be the same without a rich blackberry or a tart raspberry note. Learn about the genetics involved in developing berry varieties and design your own molecular marker. 

 

The Toxicology of Intoxication: Your Bodily Brewery | Learn how your body copes with booze in the bloodstream and discover some nifty tricks to defend against hangovers.
