Natural Selections

Natural Selections :: Experts Table | Panel Discussions | Science Activities | Food

Join North Carolina brewers at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences for our third annual Natural Selections event on Friday, Aug. 19.

Enjoy this one-of-a-kind evening of beer and science among the Museum’s dioramas. Sample unique creations fitting the Museum’s natural science focus from more than 20 North Carolina breweries.

More Beer, More Science, More Fun!

New for 2016: Enjoy a brewing demonstration, hands-on science of beer activities, panel discussions on ingredient hits and misses, interactive games, and live music by The Hey Brothers. Vote for your favorite beer during the event and award the first annual Natural Selections People’s Choice Award to one lucky brewery. 

Tickets: $30, $25 for Friends of the Museum members. Price includes beer samples, activities, and collectible Natural Selections tasting glass. You must be 21 years or older to attend. A photo ID is required for entry.
