Join Brenden Dobel, Master of the Brews at Thirsty Bear Brewing Company, and the Exploratorium Lab for an evening of hops, barley, and malts. Learn about the science of brewing beer, find your favorite during a Thirsty Bear beer tasting, and explore San Francisco’s only CCOF-certified organic brewery. Mingle with other inquisitive young professionals while enjoying complimentary Spanish tapas and an open bar that offers wine as well as Thirsty Bear beer.

The Exploratorium has six main galleries, each focused on a different area of exploration. Common to all are interactive exhibits that reward your attention and give you much to think about. Indulge your curiosity and ask your own questions as you play with the exhibits, and discover new ways to understand how our world works.

The galleries share the floor with our Exhibit Workshop, where our exhibits are researched, developed, and fabricated.
