by | Feb 18, 2016 | Press Release |

WHAT:  Here’s your chance to play with museum prototypes and enjoy some fabulous pints at Bauhaus Brew Labs. Bring your friends to see who can craft the fastest or farthest-flying paper airplane to test on our airplane launcher among other prototypes. And prizes did we mention prizes? Fastest, farthest or hippest you’ll just have to come and play to find out what you might win.

Pints & Play is a series of monthly social events for 21+ kids at heart. We’ll gather to enjoy a local pint or two and experience first-hand the innovation and creativity that comes from play. In other words, this is play for adults with the added bonus of enjoying some of the most creative beers in the metro area. Pints & Play is hosted at Minneapolis-St. Paul taprooms and facilitated by Minnesota Children’s Museum play experts. We’ll play, talk and have some fun all with some of the most interesting beverages being brewed in the metro area.

WHEN:  Tuesday, Feb. 23 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. plus more dates in March and April

WHERE:  Bauhaus Brew Labs, 1315 Tyler Street NE, Minneapolis

TICKETS:  $20 via Eventbrite (includes 1 beer and appetizers)

 WHY:  Play shouldn’t stop when you grow up. We’re not just trying to make you thirsty. We’re trying to get you — our adult community— to see how the power of play to makes our world more interesting and innovative. And that’s why we’re leading a series of play dates for adults at metro taprooms. Brewing — and play — have a lot in common:  they’re better with experimentation and they fuel creative and critical thinking.
