How is beer brewed, I hear you cask? 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? Hop down to the Tap Social – a perfectly-chilled microbrewery in Botley, Oxford – to explore the science behind a perfect pint. How is it brewed, how is it aged and, most importantly, what does it taste like? The perfect workshop for anyone who enjoys a glass of ale, 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. Wort a night it will be!

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

Founded in 2016, Tap Social Movement 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.
