ISC’s Chemistry of Beer with Metropolitan Brewery – ChiSciFest2019

May 15, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Do you ever think about the science behind beer?? Now is your chance to really understand the chemical reactions in beer they would never teach in high school chemistry!

Illinois Science Council brings back our most popular “Chemistry for Adults” program in partnership with the awesome people at Chicago’s Metropolitan Brewery. Join us for a unique hands-on Chemistry of Beerevent with ISC’s Chemist-in-Residence, Dr. Lindsey McQuade. Whether you consider yourself a connoisseur or one who just occasionally partakes, come learn the inside, chemical scoop on one of the oldest and most widely consumed alcoholic drinks in the world.

This event is not just a talk or a tasting (although there will certainly be tasting!). You will engage in hands-on chemistry experiments and leave with an insider’s view of the craft beer brewing process at Metropolitan. You’ll learn about your beloved beverage in new ways to impress others with your beer knowledge. Our friends at Metropolitan are fun and low-key, but they are serious about craft beer.

Space is limited. No science prerequisite is necessary, only your curiosity, but you must be 21 or older

Chemistry of Beer is part of ISC’s 2019 Chicago Science Fest. For more information on this week-long event, visit ChicagoScienceFest.org.

ISC’s Chemistry for Adults series has included Chemistry of . . . Coffee with Second Chance Coffee Company, Whiskey with Koval Distillery, Chocolate with Blommer Chocolate, Spirits with CH Distillery, Honey with the Notebaert Nature Museum, and Bread with Publican Quality Breads.
