Everyone knows there is a science to beer; most people just don’t know how it works. The making of beer has fascinated us for centuries, and exBEERiment is here to keep that fascination alive.
This second annual event at the Louisville Science Center happens next Wednesday, Oct. 17, and will offer not only tastings but sessions on the science of home brewing, ingredients and how to cook with beer. You’ll also see a few familiar faces, as exBEERiment partners include New Albanian Brewing Company, Against the Grain Brewery and Smokehouse, My Old Kentucky Homebrew, Pauly’s Schnitzelburg Pub, Nachbar, Bluegrass Brewing Company and Cumberland Brewery.
Also, exBEERiment will feature free ice cream samples made with beer and liquid nitrogen (???). In addition, adults can take advantage of a kids-free Science in Play exhibit where adult visitors can build rollercoasters, maneuver through a rope maze and play hide-and-seek in the Noodle Forest. Oh yeah, there will also be hydrogen balloon explosions and liquid nitrogen induced ping pong ball volcanoes.
Last but not least is the Brewseum, by My Old Kentucky Homebrew. If you missed this at Louisville Brewfest last month, you really should check it out. Oh yeah, and DJ Matt Anthony will spin some tunes as well.
Tickets are $20 for non-members, $15 for members and business partners, and $10 for designated drivers.
