Beerology: Science on Tap this weekend

AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - The Don Harrington Discovery Center is having a fundraiser this weekend for adults only. This Saturday, Feb. 25, is their annual Beerology: Science on Tap event.

Leave the kids at home and head to the Discovery Center to brew up some fun for those of us 21 and older.

This has been a favorite for several years with the 21 and older crowd and is very unique for a night out, and as a fundraiser it also helps the DHDC bring in funds to assist its educational and community programs.

Education Director Kyle Hadley showed us multiple experiments and exhibits that will be on tap this weekend. Some included; Yeast Farts - A version of Elephant Toothpaste that demonstrates where beer fizz comes from. Beer Pong provided by Axigent Technologies. Who will be crowned the Beer Pong Champ? As well as, "Beat the Bartender", see if you can you beat the bartenders at their best game.
