21+ NIGHT to Explore SCIENCE OF Distilling
I know you love your kids, but have you ever thought that being at the Carnegie Science Center might be more fun without them and with cocktails?! If so, you’re in luck! The Carnegie Science Center is hosting a 21+ event for the sexy set. So, I think that you should be there! More details appear below.
PITTSBURGH, August 2, 2013 ― Carnegie Science Center will open for adults only on Friday, Aug. 9, from 6-10 pm, for an evening titled 21+ Whiskey.
For just $10 in advance ($15 beginning at noon on Aug. 9), 21+ Night will offer a chance for adults ages 21 and up to explore the science behind the whiskey-making process from grinding the grain, to fermentation, to distillation.
Adults will have access to all four floors of exhibits, including BIKES: Science on Two Wheels, SeaScape, the Miniature Railroad and Village®, SpacePlace, and roboworld™. There will be a cash bar with a signature Wigle Whiskey drink, and snacks will be available for purchase.
21+ Whiskey will feature a live performance by Southern rock band “Sour Mash,” as well as a variety of hands-on exhibits, science demos, and presentations by Wigle Whiskey:
· Find out Pittsburgh’s role in the Whiskey Rebellion and learn about the history of whiskey in the Works Theater. Plus, “Ask the Distiller” your questions.
· Take a shot at grinding grain the old-fashioned way, using a hand grinder.
· Learn the science behind yeast and enzymes to explore the inner workings of fermentation. Find out what yeast needs in order to eat a lot of sugar and investigate how an enzyme converts sucrose into glucose.
· Explore distillation and find out how it works. Learn how the process can be used to make distilled water or essential oils. Plus, discover how Wigle Whiskey alters and adjusts the flavor of their whiskey.
· Discover another use for whiskey! Watch how this distilled alcoholic beverage lights fruit on fire to make a tasty treat in the show “Fruit Flambé,” at the Kitchen Theater.
