Pint of Science all started in the UK when scientists would gather at a local pub to talk about their latest research whilst enjoying a pint of beer with the locals. From such an innocuous start, a festival called Pint of Science was born.

Since its informal beginnings, this festival has been held every May, in almost 300 cities across 21 different countries all over the world, including Australia.
