About the Series

Astronomy on Tap is a nation-wide phenomenon where professional astronomers give informal science talks in local bars with accompanying pub trivia and interactions with the public. Scientists at Caltech organize the Los Angeles Chapter of Astronomy on Tap one Monday a month. We host these free events which are open to all at the outdoor patio of the Dog Haus Biergarten in Old Town Pasadena (with inexpensive parking structure one block away).

Each event consists of two ~15-minute informal science talks given by researchers in astronomy, physics, and space science followed by Q&A. In the intermission periods, we have guided stargazing with telescopes, astro-themed pub trivia, and live music from Jason Achilles and Forrest Mitchell. For more information and recordings of past events, please see the Caltech Astro Outreach website and the Caltech Astro YouTube page.
