READING TIME: 3 MINS.
For all you beer lovers out there, Beerology is not only one of the most desired events to attend, it is also one of the hardest events to score tickets to. For the fourth year in a row, a crowd will gather at the Museum of Science to check out brewing demonstrations by the Niagara Association of Home Brewers, while sampling beer from a number of breweries including:
• Brewery Ommegang
• Consumer’s Beverages
• Community Beer Works*
• Ellicottville Brewing Company
• Flying Bison
• Gordon Biersch*
• Great Lakes Brewing Company
• Innis & Gunn*

• McKenzie’s Hard Cider*
• Mr. Goodbar
• Otter Creek*
• Pearl Street Grill & Brewery
• Pyramid Breweries*
• Roc Brewing Company*
• Southern Tier Brewing*
*brands that are new to Beerology this year
The theme of this year’s event is ‘Hair of the Dog’ – the science behind the hangover. While beerologists lecture on the talking points behind each unique brewing tradition, visitors will attempt to understand the painful consequence that can result after sampling a few too many. The event is considered a blast for many of the beer lovers who attend. Beerology is more than just learning about brewing beer and sampling tasty brews – the event is a way for the Science Museum to raise money for programming at Tifft Nature Preserve. This is a highly sought after event that gets harder and harder to get into each year.
