Winnipeg, MB (May 17, 2019): The Manitoba Museum, in partnership with the Canadian Museum of Nature, is hosting a special tasting event on May 22 about the links between beer and botany.
During this special NatureIDEAS Beer and Botony presentation, guests will discover the art and science behind craft brewing as they enjoy a paired beer tasting led by Paul Sokoloff, botanist from the Canadian Museum of Nature and Mark Borowski, the brewmaster at Nonsuch Brewing Co. Complimentary appetizers are provided by Urban Prairie Cuisine.
As a botanist at the Canadian Museum of Nature, Sokoloff has joined numerous museum expeditions to Canada’s Arctic, collecting and documenting plant diversity in the North.
During the event, Sokoloff will share stories from botanical adventures across Canada, highlight the importance of museums in studying biodiversity, and offer insights into the natural history of the plants behind your favourite beers.
“Brewing and botany have long gone hand in hand,” says Sokoloff. “You may have gone to a tasting before, but this one offers some fun facts and science that will enhance your appreciation of beer and our relationship with nature and plants!”
Tickets for the NatureIDEAS event, which starts at 7 pm, can be purchased online at ManitobaMuseum.ca. The Manitoba Museum is located at 190 Rupert Avenue, Winnipeg
