I know you’ve missed Science Cafe New Hampshire in person, so here’s some good news: It is returning as part of Concord’s downtown Market Days!

On Thursday, June 23, at 5 p.m. we’ll host an hour-long session in the Beer Tent on Main Street to talk bout about – what else? – the science of beer. And the science of hard liquor, just to provide a little variety. (Sorry, wine lovers: we can’t fit three different processes into a single hour.)

Human beings have been using biology to turn organic compounds into alcoholic beverages for so many millennia that we’re not quite sure when it started – yet most of us don’t really know how it works.

Tracy Lesser, a biology professor at NHTI, will be there to answer your questions about how microbes turn hops into lagers and IPAs, and Greg Meeh of Cold Garden Spirits in Canterbury will be there to explain the mysteries of creating bourbon, brandy and other liquors.

Bring your questions, or just come and listen.
