Description

*Food tasting tickets have sold out! Beer Bash tickets are still available!*

Prepare your taste buds for a night of food, science and culture! Join us at the MIT Museum as we speed-geek our way around the block in a progressive dinner adventure that could include gourmet sticky buns, tacos, freshly-brewed coffee, local wine, burgers, or sake. Then, enjoy a late night at the Museum and explore at least 12 tastings of products from local breweries!

7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Food, science & culture tastings

8:30-10:30 p.m. Beer Bash @ the MIT Museum

Gather your friends and choose one of three different tracks that celebrate food, culture and science as represented on our block (181-313 Mass Ave, Cambridge). Enjoy special tastings and hear from the minds behind the venues -- chefs, founders -- who will discuss baking science, the evolution of coffee, the archaeology of the city of Saloniki, and more!
