SAN DIEGO – June 25, 2015 – The organizers of the San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering Festival Week and EXPO Day are expanding their focus to instill the love of science, technology, engineering and math in adults and what better way to begin than through “beer-ology” at their inaugural “Think, Drink, Science” fundraiser on Saturday, Aug. 15 at The Homebrewer in North Park, located at 2911 El Cajon Blvd., San Diego, CA 92104.

“Think, Drink, Science” welcomes educators, parents, fellow science enthusiasts, and beer lovers to come learn about “beer-ology” – the science behind the brewing process while enjoying delicious homebrewed beers and appetizers. All attendees will receive eight 4-oz. tastings, appetizers at each station, and a complimentary tasting glass to bring home. Tickets are just $27 per person and the event is open to guests age 21 and up. Proceeds support the festival’s We Love STEM initiative, which supports field trips and underwrites STEM focused classroom supplies for teachers throughout San Diego County.

“’While our mission is to serve our primary audience of K-12 students, our new ‘Think, Drink, Science’ is the first event on our schedule specifically for adults,” says Sara Pagano, managing director, San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering. “When children come out to our events during festival week and our EXPO Day, their faces light up and the love of STEM is ignited, so we thought, why not host an event for adults? Craft beer is a burgeoning industry in the San Diego region, and since our goal is to show how science and engineering is right in our ‘backyard,’ ‘Think, Drink, Science’ is a great way to expose the intricate science of something many enjoy everyday and see the career opportunities in this field for the future. If we can get parents hooked on STEM learning and education, it will pave the way for students to embrace STEM as well.”

About The Homebrewer 

The Homebrewer: Resource Center was founded in 2012 by husband/wife duo George and Molly Brooks-Thornton. George, a longtime homebrewer, and Molly, a sommelier, felt the North Park community of San Diego needed its homebrew store. The result is what is regarded as a shop with local neighborhood feel, but big city selection. The dedicated and well-trained staff has earned The Homebrewer a reputation for being a one-stop shop complete with knowledge and an above par customer experience.

The goal is to enrich the homebrewing hobby for current customers of The Homebrewer, as well as to educate casual beer drinkers about what it takes to go from grain to glass.
