Celebrate the “science of beer” on Saturday, July 23rd


Didn’t get tickets to ComicCon? Well, if you’re a beer geek and a tech enthusiast, listen up.

On Saturday, July 23rd, SILO in Makers Quarter (an urban playground and community event space) will transform into a liquid laboratory for a one-of-a-kind “Science of Beer” festival fueled by beer ‘science’ activities with UC San Diego Extension’s Brewing Certificate Program.

Learn about the science behind beer making with brewery demonstrations, information sessions and talks from industry professionals and featured homebrewers including Rick Blankemeier (quality manager at Stone Brewing), Lee Chase (brewmaster at Automatic Brewing Co.), Jim Crute (founder of Lightning Brewing), Teresa Grosch (program director for UC San Diego Extension Brewing Certificate program) and others.

Educate your mind and your palate with beer tastings from nine of the city’s premier breweries including Stone Brewing, Lightning Brewing, Rip Current and Automatic Brewing Co. Rounding out the event, we’ll have live music, local food trucks providing amazing eats, and yard games including life-size beer pong and giant Jenga.

 WHEN: Saturday, July 23, 2016 | 3 to 6 p.m.

 WHERE: SILO in Makers Quarter | 753 15th St., San Diego CA 92101

 COST: $25 | Open to the public, ages 21+. Purchase tickets in advance online at scienceofbeer2016.eventbrite.com. Tickets are also available for purchase day-of at the door on a first-come, first-served basis.

Sponsored by Makers Quarter, UC San Diego Extension and Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Inc., this event brings San Diego’s life science and craft beer communities together for a unique collaboration.

Proceeds from the event will benefit our charity partner, David’s Harp Foundation—a local 501(c)3 focused on empowering at-risk and homeless youth to achieve academic success through music education and multimedia production.
