Astronomy on Tap TUS is held the third Tuesday of every month at one of Tucson’s finest microbreweries, The Borderlands Brewing Company (119 E. Toole Ave., Tucson at 7:30 pm Arizona time, and streamed live on our YouTube channel at bit.ly/SpaceDraftsYoutube

Originally started as a talk series by Vanessa Bailey and Rob Zellem in 2014, we’re now organized by astronomy grad students Logan Pearce (Steward Observatory), Lily Whitler (Steward Observatory), Matthew Murphy (Steward Observatory), Hayden Foote (Steward Observatory), Sóley Hyman (Steward Observatory)

In addition to talks, we also have
