April 7 | Science on Tap

Join us on Thursday, April 7th in the Cellar at the Flathead Lake Brewing Co. Pubhouse for our next Science on Tap event! Doug Emlen, regents professor of biology at the University of Montana, will present “Extreme Weapons: A Natural History.”

Every animal has a weapon of one sort or another, but the overwhelming majority of weapons stay small. Yet, sprinkled through the tree of life are species where weapons become extreme. Occasionally, human manufactured weapons also evolve to extremes. Emlen reveals that the same critical conditions trigger arms races in both cases, and the most crucial prerequisite is duels. A journey that begins with biology becomes the story of all weapons, as Emlen discusses beetles and battleships, crabs and the Cold War.

The presentation will begin at 6:30pm, but the Cellar will open for service at 6pm. We have several tables available + bar seating. Make sure to reserve yours before they’re gone! Premium tables are closer to the stage with better viewing. Upper Floor tables and bar seating is set back further from the stage. There are 8 seats available at the bar, select how the number of seats needed.

The Cellar has 14 brews on tap and a full bar. We will not be serving food downstairs for the event, but please come early and enjoy dinner on the main floor of the Pubhouse!

All proceeds from table reservations will go directly to our partners, the Flathead Lakers and the Flathead Lake Biological Station.
