The Exploratorium’s Science of Cocktails, in January 2012

Every winter, the Exploratorium’s Science of Cocktails event presents the artistry of master mixologists shaken with the science behind the craft. Since the event’s inception in 2010, it has raised more than $150,000 for the Exploratorium’s numerous educational programs.

The 2012 event will take place January 26, 2012, and will feature mixologists from popular San Francisco bars to mix delicious cocktails, while guests participate in interactive science experiments about alcohol, inebriation, hangovers, cocktail creation, and more.

Taking an in-depth, hands-on look at the physics, chemistry, and biology of cocktails, the event will engage you in an exploration of your favorite libations in ways you’ve never experienced before.

With support from the City’s young go-getters such as chairs Cameron Phleger, Zen St. Clair,
and Liza Wood, and supporters including Justin Fichelson, Katie Schwab Paige and Matt Paige, Michael Stoppelman, Alison Sonsini Turner and Alex Turner, among others, the event is quite popular, so a certain number of pre-sale tickets have been made available now, which you can purchase at cocktails.exploratorium.edu
