Talk: 'The Science of Booze' in Palo Alto

Uploaded: Jun 9, 2015
Get a dose of science with your evening cocktail Thursday, June 11, in Palo Alto. Adam Rogers, author of "Proof: The Science of Booze" and Wired magazine editor, will be giving a talk at the Oshman Family JCC at 6:30 p.m., hosted by the Commonwealth Club.

Hear Rogers talk about both the production of alcohol -- fermentation, malting, physics, chemistry and more ? and the psychology and neurobiology behind consumption of booze.

A reception will be sponsored by several Bay Area booze companies: Alameda-based St. George Spirits, Milpitas-based Big Dog Vineyards, San Jose's Hermitage Brewing Company and Red Branch Cider Company in Sunnyvale.

For non-Commonwealth Club members, the event is $35 per person. Members get in for $25. All attendees must be 21 years or older. For more information and to purchase tickets, go to commonwealthclub.org.

Doors open at 6 p.m. at the JCC's Schultz Cultural Hall, 3921 Fabian Way, Palo Alto.
