Science on Tap 

When: Tue., April 23, 7:30-9 p.m. 2013
Price: free
naturalhistory.ku.edu/events
The KU Natural History Museum's latest topic for its Science on Tap discussion series is heavy — "The Gut Talks, But Does the Liver Listen? The Role of the Gut Microbiome in Alcoholic Liver Disease" — so we leave it to the expert and the evening's speaker, assistant professor Michele Pitchard. But ask her if Copperhead Pale Ale will cause your gut microbiome to behave differently than Ad Astra Ale, and she'll tell you something like this: "It is likely that the gut microbiome is sensitive to the amount of ethanol to which it is exposed and for how long that exposure persists." Educate yourself on your booze habits and their effects at Free State Brewery (636 Massachusetts, Lawrence) from 7:30 to 9 p.m. For more information about the free event, see naturalhistory.ku.edu.
