AoT-Cville: Astronomy on Tap in Charlottesville, VA

AoT-Cville was founded in 2018 by Trey Wenger, then a graduate student in the astronomy department at the University of Virginia and has been having in-person and virtual events ever since. It is now organized primarily by Matt Pryal, previously a graduate student at UVA and currently an assistant professor in the astronomy department. The organizing group also consists of members of the Astronomy department, the nearby NRAO, and Charlottesville Astronomical Society.

We typically host free to attend events the first Monday of every odd numbered month but occasionally deviate from this schedule. Our in person events typically take place at Three Notch’d Craft Kitchen and Brewery or Champion Brewing. Virtual events are held over Zoom webinars and require a free webinar code.
