Lake Ariel – The popular Science on Tap series returns for 2019 at the Wallenpaupack Brewing Company. Science on Tap is a monthly gathering in Wayne and Pike Counties that features public discussion on engaging science topics. Science on Tap features a brief, informal presentation by a scientist or other expert followed by lively conversation.

The goal is to promote enthusiasm for science in a fun, spirited, and accessible way, while also meeting new people. Come join the conversation!

For each event, we tap an expert in a particular field to lead a presentation and lively discussion in an informal setting. The programs are always free, but if you decide to purchase food and drink, it's your bill! There is no registration to attend, but you might plan to arrive early for the best seating. Programs begin at 6 pm.

The Science on Tap program series kicked off in March 2014. The series is organized by a partnership of local conservation and environmental groups from Pike and Wayne Counties in Northeastern Pennsylvania. That means Science on Tap speakers come from a multitude of different perspectives and share knowledge on everything from the history of science to nature and ecology.

This month’s Science on Tap program is The Science of Beer presented by Dr. Denis Peterson. Dennis has undergraduate degrees in Chemistry and Biology and a doctorate in Biochemistry from the University of Minnesota. He has been seriously brewing beer for the last 15 years (and drinking if for most of his life.) Dennis is a BJCP certified beer judge and a member of the American Home Brewers Association.

The Science of Beer will take place on Thursday May 23rd at 6 pm at the Wallenpaupack Brewing Co.
