The Contemporaries Lunchtime Lecture: The Social Potential of Beer



June 1, 2015 |Lunchtime Lecture: The Social Potential of Beer

Featuring Aja Rose Bond and Gabriel Saloman of STAG Library in Strathcona, BC (via Skype) and Anna Hayes of Sampling Science, this panel discussion will focus on the social aspects of beer drinking, and how that can be harnessed for a variety of different projects, be they research or art-based.


STAG Library is a semi-public, semi-private lending and reference library run out of the Strathcona, BC home of Aja Rose Bond and Gabriel Saloman. The STAG has begun publishing an irregular journal called BREW PUB, which takes the form of a beer, where the contents of the label, the contents of the bottle, and any additional materials are considered the contents of the journal. These journals are created collaboratively with other artists and usually a brewmaster.

Sampling Science was founded in the fall of 2014 by Anna Hayes and Taylor Lubecki, the original fundraising chairs for the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) and the Society of Women Engineers (SWE). Their fundraising event mixes engineering with craft beer, highlighting Tampa Bay’s booming craft brew industry, as well as educating attendees on the engineering and science behind the brews.

The Contemporaries host Lunchtime Lectures, a grab bag of artist talks, panel discussions, and art historical lectures that focus on contemporary themes during the lunch hour of the first Monday of each month.

Lunch is always included thanks to our food sponsor, Eat, Sip, Indulge:
$10 for members of The Contemporaries
$15 for non-members of The Contemporaries
