Enjoy a Pint & Learn About the Hubble Telescope

Have you ever been to one of Flathead Lake Brewing Company's "Science on Tap" events? On the first Tuesday of every month, they host an educational presentation led by an expert in some field while raising money for the Flathead Lakers and Flathead Lake Biological Station! This set-up provides the unique and precious opportunity to enjoy great beer while learning about and supporting science! The next Science on Tap is happening TODAY, February 6th, and features a retired aerospace engineer from NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab discussing the incredible Hubble Space Telescope.
