Details us for another exciting episode of Science by the Pint, as we explore the science of--you guessed it--beer :) Dr. Ann Pringle and colleagues will be discussing their work with those little fun gi's known as yeast, which brew the sudsy stuff for us to imbibe in :)

NOTE: This month's event will be at a different location - Champions Bar in Kendall Square, as part of the Cambridge Science Festival. Next month we'll be back at the Burren :)

For those who've never been, Science by the Pint is an event sponsored by an organization of Harvard graduate students called Science in the News. In between their sleepless hours of hard work at Harvard Med School, they bring their cutting edge scientific research to the public in a fun and informal format. The event goes like this:

The main speaker gives a short 5-10 minute talk (not a full length lecture) about their research, then answers general questions from the audience. The team of colleagues comes around to individual tables and spends one-on-one time answering questions over food and refreshments. Lots of nerdy fun is had by all. Champions is located right near the Kendall/MIT Red Line stop, at the Marriott Hotel. Things officially start at 7:00, but arriving by 6:30 allows fellow nerds to find a place to sit together, order food and drinks, and be ready once things get going.

Hope to see you there :)
