Hosted by
Illinois Science Council

You drink beer, but do you ever think about beer? You should. 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 impressive folks at Chicago’s own Metropolitan Brewery. Join us for a unique hands-on Chemistry of Beer event 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 (but there will definitely 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, and 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.
