Brewing Up a Storm – WexSci Science Festival

Tuesday, 14th November 2017 - 7:00pm

Brewing Up a Storm with Dr. Stephen Whelan.

Alcohol and its consumption frequently enjoy bad publicity, but this is mostly due to our fractious relationship with our fermented friends; beers, wine and spirits. In moderation, alcohol consumption may have positive health implications. So what about the process of turning water into wine, what else is involved and who are the people behind the scenes of this €1.4 billion export market? In this seminar, you will have an opportunity to hear from a farmer, an advisor, a brewmaster and a scientist about the growing of barley to the brewing of beer.

Suitable for adults and young people. Please phone Gorey Library on 053 942 1481 to book a place. Should you require any supports to fully participate in this event, please contact the Librarian.
