CHARDON, Ohio – The owners of Chardon BrewWorks & Eatery have come up with an interesting way to entertain your brain while having a brew.  The pub will host monthly “Suds ‘n Science” nights, featuring experts discussing a variety of scientific topics.

“Recently my wife, Donna, and I were sampling the wares of Market Garden Brewery in Cleveland and saw a mass of interesting, learned-looking people standing, drinking good beer and listening to someone give a lecture about free radicals,” Mike recalled. “We really thought this would be a great thing to bring to Chardon.”

The lectures will take place the second Wednesday of eadh month at 8:00 p.m. at Chardon BrewWorks, located at 205 Main Street on the historic Chardon Square.

Upcoming Suds ‘n Science nights:

  • May 9 – The Story of Science and the Brook Trout in Geauga County
    Speaker: Paul Pira, Park Biologist, Geauga Park District
  • June 13 – Observatory Park, From the Ground to the Galaxies
    Speakers: Ian Cooper, Chagrin Valley Astronomical Society
    Tom Curtin, Executive Director, Geauga Park District
  • July 11 – Biomedicine
    Speaker: Alex Massiello, M.E., Senior Principal Research Engineer, Cleveland Clinic

“Suds ‘n Science is for the people who look at something and think ‘how does it work?’ or ‘why does it do this?’ or ‘why does that happen?’” Mike added. “We geeks need at least one night a month to gather and listen to interesting, geeky things in a pub with a beer in our hands. In partnership with local institutions, I’m hoping we can bring interesting topics to the brewpub for people to enjoy and learn about over a pint of great beer.”

“This whole project has produced unique partnerships. “It’s a pleasure to partner with a small business in the community in such a unique and ‘tasteful’ way,” said Geauga Park District Executive Director Tom Curtin.

The brewery is open Tuesday through Thursday from 3 to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 3 p.m. to midnight, and Sunday from 3 to 8 p.m.
