Beer and . . . Bugs?


If you’ve got a hankering to sink your teeth into a handful of insects, UC Davis’ Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science has just the event for you. Tickets are now on sale for a unique afternoon in November called “Bugs and Beer: Why Crickets and Kölsch Might be Matches Made in Heaven.” Attendees will have an opportunity to sample eight different combinations of bugs and suds, expertly guided by Professor of Malting & Brewing Sciences Dr. Charlie Bamforth, author of Beer is Proof God Loves Us; and David George Gordon, “The Bug Chef,” author of The Eat-a-Bug Cookbook. The event, which costs $50 per person, occurs on Saturday, Nov. 1, and a portion of the proceeds from the event will support the Bohart Museum of Entomology at UC Davis.
