BREW-SEUM FAQs

Brew-seum is a fundraiser to benefit the International Museum of Art & Science and support year-round Art & Science education in the Rio Grande Valley.
Brew-seum events celebrate the region’s ever-growing love and curiosity for the world’s oldest fermented beverage. Celebrate the International Museum of Art & Science and the love of craft beer on April 15, 2021! This year we have more than one way to join in the fun with a virtual 5K, virtual science of beer bread baking event with CC’s Sweets, Beer Dinner at University Drafthouse Townlake, more fun with “beer muggings”, in person and virtual Brew-seum, and Beer & Yoga with Casa Om Yoga.
