Bats & Brews Take a taste bud tour of the world of beer and meet some Bay Area bats. Beer is universal; every culture knows beer and every culture is proud to boast that its brew is the best on earth. Civilized people all over the world brew and enjoy truly great beers, but could it be possible that beer is responsible for civilization as we know it?
Ponder this and other truths as you enjoy a tasting from some of our local breweries.

Join us at this fun, informative evening and learn while tasting classic varieties such as lagers, pilsner, ale, malt, and wheat beers. Naturalists will present one of nature's most effective pest control animals, bats, which are highly beneficial to the crops from which beer is made. Must be 21 to attend.. Cost: $45/person, Ages 21 & up.
