From Monday, May 11 to Wednesday, May 13, a selection of Brisbane pubs will welcome some of the country's cleverest minds to chat about their current scientific research. You'll learn all about new discoveries, technologies and advancements — and maybe even discover what's in your pint.
On the agenda: plenty of topics to get you thinking over a brew. This year's specific subjects haven't been announced yet, but you can expect to ponder how supercomputers helped firefighters this summer, whether it's possible to brew beer from ancient Egyptian yeast and what Aussie native bees have to do with our future.
While tickets don't go sale until mid-April, attendance will cost less than a pint. To boost your brain over a few brews, head to Brewhouse Brisbane, either of Newstead Brewing's watering holes, Sea Legs, The Burrow, The Charming Squire, The Norman, The Waterloo, The Redbrick Hotel, The Paddo or the Waterloo.
