About the Academy’s Indoor Beer Garden: Dino Drafts

12th St. Catering and the Academy of Natural Sciences are celebrating fourth Fridays this winter and spring by offering Dino Drafts: The Academy Beer Garden inside the museum’s famous Dinosaur Hall. Come warm up inside, play board games, and purchase beer, wine, and a specialty cocktail plus mouthwatering bites (think tacos!) at the foot of a 40-foot-long T. rex and its prehistoric friends. The entire museum will be open with pay-what-you-wish admission (suggested donation is $10). Families are welcome—and if you like, you can stop by for a drink and carry it with you as your group enjoys the museum. Partial proceeds from Dino Drafts: The Academy Beer Garden benefit the Academy of Natural Sciences.
