MoSH hosted their annual Science of Beer event on January 13, and Mid-South beer lovers converged at the Pink Palace to sample excellent beer samples and restaurant nibbles. Part education and part party, the evening included exhibits, games, mini-lectures, music, and lots of beer-themed fun. The proceeds fund MoSH's education and outreach programs. There is nothing better than a night of tasting the region's best brews for a great cause!

Museum of Science & History presents "Science of Beer"


Memphis Filling Station (MFS) Brewing was on hand again for this year’s Science of Beer. The future start-up brewery plans to offer high-quality craft beer options and was once again an award winner at the event, taking second place. MFS was started by long-time friends Heather Reed and Bryan Berretta, and they've added to their team with Scott Kley Contini, Blake Marcum, and Jesse Lara in key roles. They brewed unique and flavorful beers this year much to the crowd's delight, including their Salted Caramel Toasted Coconut Imperial Porter and Coriander & Orange Citrus Wheat. Even though they were competing against professional breweries, MFS has come in first or second place for the People’s Choice Award for Best Brewery six out of the past seven years of the event. They are currently looking for investors and have launched a Kickstarter campaign, working toward the goal of opening a taproom for beer lovers to enjoy their delicious sips. MFS Brewing is planning a launch in late 2023, and we are excited to raise a toast to more great beer in the Bluff City!
