That's right, tonight's Science After Dark monthly fundraiser at the Museum of Discovery investigates the science of beer — how it's made, why it tastes the way it does, etc.

From MOD's facebook page:

Fun fact: the term "rule of thumb" originated from brewing. Before the advent of thermometers, brewers tested the temperature of their maturing brews with their thumbs. If it was too cold, the yeast wouldn't grow. If it was too hot, the yeast would die. We'll be talking about all kinds of brewing trivia and the science of beer this Wednesday evening at Science after Dark!

Sounds like fun, and it's only $5. Cash bar. No kiddos.
