Guests at the Art of Brewing party Thursday will get a chance to try four Rabid Brewing specialties given to guests in an orange chill pack by the Homewood Science Center, host of the evening’s program.
Brewery owners Raiye Rosado and Tobias Cinchon specially selected what they are calling a flight of Science Select — three beers and a hard seltzer.
“We specially selected those four products to try and hit a wide variety of pallets. You try to make sure people will hopefully find at least one or two things to love, if not everything,” Rosado said.
“Tobias and I are going to ‘peel back the veil’ so to speak, and talk about the science of beer making and so we’ll use those beers that are in that pack to talk about differences in process,” she said. “One of those is a seltzer so it has some very different ingredients. One of them is a stout and has roasted malt in it, and that’s a good opportunity to talk about the variety of malts. And they all are made with yeast, which is super fascinating in itself because yeast does so many things, including for fermenting and creating the alcoholic foundation in beer.”
In addition to the flight of the Science Select four-pack, guests at the 7 to 10 p.m. party will also get two drink tickets, listen to great entertainment by the Not My Dad Band, snack on munchies, play some games and enjoy being outdoors under a tent on the grounds of Rabid Brewing, 17759 Bretz Dr., Homewood. Indoors Rosado will be serving seltzer and beer slushies.
Individual tickets to the benefit for the Homewood Science Center are $60 and can be purchased on the center website at homewoodsciencecenter.org. Bidding is also open for a silent auction featuring a variety of prizes, from White Sox and Cubs tickets to wine tasting and yoga sessions.
