Celebrating the end of Post Doc Appreciation Week at Aeronaut Brewing Co.

Posted on Updated on

It’s fitting that we celebrated a great week of events focusing on the contributions that postdocs make to research at Tufts at Aeronaut Brewing Co.

Aeronaut was founded in 2014 by three MIT PhDs, Ben, Ron and Dan. Since then, Aeronaut has grown in popularity (and makes amazing beer!).

Our Capstone event included a personal tour by Ron of the facilities,

A great introduction to brewing with (of course) a discussion of biochemistry and a sampling of Aeronaut’s finest.

We ended the evening sharing our pizza with the folks at the adjacent table and playing vintage Nintendo via the brewery wall projector.


Thanks to Michael, Brian, Ranjith and Ron for making this an awesome night!

See you at the next event!
