Science and beer go together like hops and barley, and we're excited to explore this perfect duo with you through a series of events that showcase the science of brewing. 

We're thrilled to announce the launch of the Fleet Pale Ale with Burning Beard Brewing Company. This delicious beer is a collaboration between the Fleet Science Center and Burning Beard. Join us at the brewery for a special launch event where you can be among the first to try this one-of-a-kind, limited-edition brew. Learn about the science behind the brewing process, and chat with the experts from the Fleet and Burning Beard about what makes this beer so unique. And make sure to save the special can, designed especially to reflect a beloved Fleet Giant Dome experience!  

We're excited to present Beautifica by James Hood, hosted by White Labs. Hood is a renowned composer and percussionist who has been incorporating science into his music for years.  Beautifica 360, in the Heikoff Giant Dome Theater, blends sound and vision to create a mesmerizing world. San Diego’s own White Labs is one of the premier yeast labs in the world and is dedicated to educating people about the impact of yeast and fermentation on what we consume, stretching the limits of science to set new standards in purity and freshness.  

We're bringing back our popular Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar event. This is your chance to chat one-on-one with scientists while enjoying a pint at your favorite local watering hole. Our scientists will be stationed at bars throughout the county, including White Labs Brewing Co. and Burning Beard Brewing Co., where they’ll be ready to answer your questions about everything from astrophysics to microbiology. It's a unique opportunity to connect with the scientific community and engage in exciting conversations over a cold beer. 

We can't wait to raise a glass with you!
