    Allan Rice (Atom Beers)

    Allan Rice founded Atom Beers on scientific principles, with research and experimentation at the heart of the process.

    Atom's website showcases beers called Pulsar, Quantum State and Schroedinger's Cat, and says that Atom "aims to blend scientific principle, brewing knowledge and raw enthusiasm to create beers that are full of big flavours, use world class ingredients and display their own unique style. Ultimately the process of making beer (whether traditional or off the wall) is the most exciting part of what we do. There is nothing better than experimenting on our brew kit to make a new beer."

    Allan Rice will be talking about the science behind brewing a good beer.  To promote the spirit of sceptical inquiry, he will provide samples of the beers to taste.

    The annual Leeds Cafe Sci festive QUIZ will be in the BAR at Seven Arts on Tuesday 19th December (8pm start).  It has a science theme to it, and a pub quiz format, but no pictures of pop stars for you to recognise.

    Will it be really hard?  No.

    Is there a prize?  Yes - wine / chocs.

    Do I need to turn up with three other people? No, you can join with others to form a team.

    What does it cost?  Nothing.

    Would a science degree or PhD help?  Not much.  No qualifications are necessary, though an interest in science would help.

    Will it be like science tests at school? No - it's in a bar!

    What sort of questions can I expect?  In previous years, there have been rounds on: time travel in the movies; the science of Santa; the IgNobel prizes; space exploration.

    Presented by... you (perhaps)

    Have you got a favourite picture, graph, chart, photo or other image that captures something scientifically interesting or important? Have you seen an original or memorable way of presenting scientific data or research findings? Would you like to show that picture and speak about it for a few minutes at the science slam on 20th March? Please email dominic.rayner@yahoo.co.uk if you would like to take part.

    (A chart or image could include a short animation or GIF, provided it is less than a minute long.)
