We encourage any adults 21 and over to come and celebrate the wedding of Kronprinz Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen... whoops this is Science-toberfest...

Join us at the MSC for beer and science pairings with beer from local breweries! Do some astro-photography and take pictures of the night sky while pondering big questions like:Are we hydrating or dehydrating when we drink beer? Can you spread germs when drinking beer? Did a 200 year-old beer drinking festival really start as a giant wedding party?

Lederhosen not required.
