Event description

Description

Many people will tell you that brewing beer is an art. If you are a beer lover, you know what type of brew you fancy most -but do you know what processes cause these different styles and flavour profiles to come to be? That, my friend, is where the science comes in!

Join us as we get a tour of the Walkerville Brewery from their brewer with a side biology lesson from Dr. Tanya Noel, a microbiologist at the University of Windsor. Following the tour, we'll have some beer-themed trivia! We will also have a selection of items for purchase from local artisans celebrating the love of beer and science.

Beer is never fully enjoyed without pizza, so Licia Ruby Food Co. will also be on hand preparing Roman-style pizza slices for our enjoyment, conveniently paired with Walkerville brews. Stay tuned for the menu!
