Science is Brewing. 5th Annual Brewfest.

Don’t just drink beer, learn beer! At our 5th annual brewfest, sample beers from local breweries while learning how beer is made, how to grow hops and enjoy some fun beer tricks while you're at it!

Shoot off water rockets, concoct chemical creations, and explore the wonders of OMSI with no kids in sight! Watch creative performances and enjoy a pint of beer while learning about the science behind cars, explosions, and cider — there's a new theme every month. All that and more with OMSI After Dark, a night at the museum for the 21+ crowd filled with food, drink, music, and science fun!

21+ only, IDs required. OMSI After Dark is held the last Wednesday of every month.

Want to get a head start on the science fun? Drink up at happy hour starting at 5pm in OMSI's eatery, Theory! The event takes place before OMSI After Dark each month and features a special menu including stone hearth pizza and local beer and wine.

Demonstrations & Activities

Tap Into History

Oregon's craft brewing industry has kept people busy for the past 3 decades, but it wasn’t until the Oregon Hops & Brewing Archives was established in 2013 that an archivist joined the work. This presentation will tell the story of how OHBA worked with communities to save and share an amazing history of agriculture, science, and culture in the midst of a movement.
