Beer samples from 10 breweries, beer science and beer education all are on the agenda for Carnegie Science Center’s 21+ Science After Hours event on Aug. 17.

Visitors to Carnegie Science Center’s Friday night 21+Science After Hours event will enjoy beer samples from 10 local breweries, a behind-the-scenes look at the brewing process, giant beer pong, beer and cheese pairing classes, and beer-themed science demonstrations, according to a news release.

Representatives from the Brew Museum will discuss beer’s history, and the Three Rivers Alliance of Serious Homebrewers will offer demonstrations and information about the home brewing process and experience.

Also available will be cash bars, snacks available for purchase in the RiverView Café, and the chance to experience four floors of hands-on exhibits including USS Requin (SS 481) Submarine, all with no little ones afoot.
