To Brooklyn, Wit Love

Published on July 9th, 2013


So everyone loves beer, right? Right. But have you ever stopped to think why it tastes so delicious? Or why that Pale Ale was the most refreshing thing you ever drank in your whole entire life after eating that whole plate of hot wings at 3am? (We’ve all been there).

Well lucky for us there is a crack team of scientists right here in Philly dedicated to unlocking the secrets of scent, taste and smell. The Monell Chemical Senses Center, located in West Philly, has worked for years to tell us why we experience taste and smell the way we do, and now is your chance to give back and help support this noble effort.

Monell, in conjunction with Nerd Nite Philly, Yards Brewery, yours truly, and many other great sponsors have gotten together to organize a fundraiser that will benefit one of Monell’s best and brightest scientists, Rocky Parker, in his quest to present his research at the Nerd Nite Global Fest in Brooklyn. So come out to Yards Brewery this Thursday, July 11 and help support a great cause.

In appreciation for your support, we’ll be offering:

  • Yards beer on tap all night (+1 free drink ticket with entry!)
  • Tours of the Yards brewery facilities
  • Free food
  • Live music from TNP amigo Ben Arsenal
  • Fun food science demonstrations
  • Rocky talking nerdy
  • PLUS we’ll be raffling off some amazing prizes courtesy of Yards, The Franklin Institute and more!

So come out on Thursday for great food, plentiful beer, and great tunes all for a good cause.
