Do you love Beer? Do you love Physics? The RiotACT has two tickets (worth $88) to give to a reader to attend the awesome Physics of Beer event at Questacon next Friday 11 August. Even if you don’t like physics or beer, surely you know someone who does?

This August, Questacon is celebrating National Science Week by diving into the physics of the amber ale with ‘The Physics of Beer’. This is the latest in Questacon’s boutique adults-only event series, which sees a confluence of science and alcohol tastings. Previous topics have included the science of whisky and the science of gin. This two-hour experience includes interactive science demonstrations, exciting edible experiments with liquid nitrogen, and – of course – beer tastings, including some local Canberra favourites.

If you love science and adult entertainment at Questacon – don’t hesitate to book as these events are very likely to sell out.

What: The Physics of Beer
When: 7 pm on Fridays 11 and 18 August
Where: Questacon, King Edward Terrace, Parkes ACT
Who: Lovers of beer, lovers of physics, 18+
Cost: $44 per person – tickets available: www.questacon.edu.au/qshop/Questacon-Events/
More information: www.facebook.com/events/1617121144988136/

So how do you (or the mates you shared this post with) win the two free tickets?

You must, of course, be over 18 to enter. The tickets are not transferable and are only valid for Friday 11 August.

Just tell us, in fifty words or less (either in the comments below, or with an awesome photo/meme in the RiotACT Facebook feed of this post) why you love physics and beer! The best answer will be selected by RiotACT staff on Tuesday of next week and you will be notified on Wednesday. We’ll let everyone know who the winner is in the comments below and on the RiotACT Facebook page.

Elias Hallaj (aka CBRfoodie) is a part-time food blogger and full-time political staffer who has joined RiotACT as a regular contributor. All his opinions about drinking beer are his own. Don’t worry he is trying to cut back on drinking too much beer, but insists it’s just too damned tasty. If you have any tips or feedback or advice about beer or brewing you can add a comment below or find him most nights on Twitter @CBRfoodie.

Dear all, just a short note to congratulate Rachael Lizars and her lucky husband Aaron. They’ve won two tickets to the Questacon Physics of Beer event tomorrow night! Thanks to everyone who entered, and although tomorrow night’s event is now sold out I understand there are still tickets available for next Friday night. So if you want to learn more about Physics and Beer and taste some samples then please contact Questacon directly to purchase tickets.

I love physics because my high school physics teacher let us run riot – we burnt and melted stuff with bunson burners and chemicals, however I learnt very little. This is the perfect chance to finally learn some physics while combining it with my one true love, beer.

The theory of relativity = The more beer I drink, the less relatively boring you are 🙂

Apples are to gravity as beer is to my throat.
