Craft beer and science aren't always the most likely of combos, but they are coming together in perfect harmony for National Science Week later this month.

If you head along to Richmond brewery Mountain Goat, on Thursday, August 16, you'll have the chance to explore the hidden wonders of the deep, dark universe, from the comfort of your bar stool.

Astrophysicists Professor Alan Duffy and Dr Rebecca Allen will host an immersive, science-filled session, looking at some of the groundbreaking work Aussie scientists are doing in the realm of space-time and the microscopic world.

As part of the Q&A, guests will each pop on a SciVR headset to embark on an immersive virtual reality tour, shooting through black holes and discovering a plethora of microscopic wonders along the way. All this, while enjoying a few Mountain Goat beers.
