Limited Capacity seats available

Rogers, articles editor at WIRED Magazine, has just published a book, titled Proof: The Science of Booze, which details humanity's long-standing relationship with the sauce and what we are only just now coming to understand about how it works.

The book explores the accidental beginnings of hooch and argues that it was a civilizing force—in spite of how uncivilized it can often make people behave. He dives into the science of how beer is made, wine is pressed and spirits are distilled. Rogers even gives his readers the most important information of all—what science knows about what causes hangovers, and how they can be effectively combated.
