Description: A regular event where nerds and those who love them get together to drink beer and give 20-ish-minute presentations to other nerds on subjects that are ostensibly of great interest to nerds. Past topics include the chemistry of coffee, meat-eating plants, how drug use affects the musical brain, and bike-nomics. It's like the Discovery Channel, with beer.
