Astronomy on Tap continues in Kingston with another free event on the top floor of Kingston Brewing Company on December 4th at 6:30 pm.

Astronomy on Tap is a series of world-wide events in which professional astronomers give informal talks at a local bar on topics of broad interest in astronomy and astrophysics. This particular event will consist of three 10 minute talks, followed by questions and comments. Speakers will mingle with the audience between and after the talks, and there will also be trivia sessions with questions related to astronomy. At the end of the night prizes will be give out to the winners!

For this event we will feature three fantastic astronomers/astroparticle physicists: Drs. Sarah Sadavoy, Mark Chen, and Gregg Wade. The evening will follow the theme of “The Birth, Life and Death of Stars”. The event will also feature trivia and some games for all participants, and lots of opportunity to have a pint with some keen astronomers.

The event is free and open to all ages. The Kingston Brewing Company has alcohol, soft drinks, and food. The event will be upstairs as you come inside.

Space is limited, so we encourage you to arrive on time!
