OMSI After Dark: Brewfest

OMSI After Dark: Brewfest event image
SEP 27 | 6-10 PM

Don’t just drink beer, learn beer! Sample beers from local breweries, and learn something while you're at it!


Shoot off water rockets, concoct chemical creations, and explore the wonders of OMSI with no kids in sight! Enjoy a glass of wine while learning about robots, tornados, or fossils. Talk to a brewer about the science behind beer, or sample products from local artisans.


All that and more with OMSI After Dark, a night at the museum for the 21-and-over crowd filled with food, drink, and science fun!
