Beer on Tap workshop makes perfect gift for Christmas
Wednesday 20th December 2017
If you’re stuck for a festive gift for the person who has everything – what about treating them to an evening at a microbrewery – but with a twist?
Today we’re excited to launch a special event the Science of Beer for February 2018. In partnership with Tap Social, the perfectly-chilled microbrewery in Botley, Oxford, we’ll be exploring the science behind a perfect pint. How is beer brewed? Why do the bubbles in a pint draught down as well as up? What is the best cure for a sore head the morning after the night before? And most importantly, what does it taste like?
This really is the perfect workshop for anyone who enjoys a glass of ale as there’ll be a beer tasting session, booze-themed hands-on science experiments, a tour of the brewery and after all that, a FREE pint to refresh the parts that other science events don’t reach.
Book tickets here.
The ticket price includes:
- Beer tasting session
- Brewery tour
- Talk on the science of brewing
- Hands-on beer-themed science experiments
- A FREE pint of your favourite beer
We’re delighted to be running this event with Tap Social. Head brewer Jason has a real passion for brewing good beer and the first year of operating, has brewed 12 beers with Tap Social and due to the process (they don’t fine the beer) they are all vegan and naturally hazy. Read more about the brewing here.
Founded in 2016, Tap Social Movement is a unique organisation that grew out of a passion for good beer and social justice. Having experience in a range of positions across the criminal justice system, the founders Paul, Amy and Tess witnessed the difficulty people face when trying to turn their lives around after coming into contact with the law. There is a lack of support and assistance available to navigate complicated career pathways, and criminal records often dissuade employers from hiring otherwise eligible candidates. Tap Social Movement was founded in an attempt to stop this vicious cycle by providing opportunities, which set people up for long-term fulfilling employment.
The Tap Social is a craft brewery, which provides training courses for people serving prison sentences, offering courses in brewing and business start-up, and providing one-on-one support in securing permanent employment to assist in effective rehabilitation.
