The San Diego Natural History Museum is hosting a special event called "Bugs & Beer" May 1, at 6:30 PM in celebration of their featured exhibit,"Dr. Entomo’s Palace of Exotic Wonders."

Guests will enjoy a variety of beer samples from acclaimed local breweries as well as hosted appetizers including an array of edible insects.

Museum Curator of Entomology Dr. Michael Wall will offer a presentation on how insects help create the amazing flavors of our everyday foods and a brew master from one of San Diego's acclaimed breweries will share a brief history of beer.

In addition to the tasty "Bugs & Beer" samples, attendees are invited to peruse the "Dr. Entomo" exhibition and explore the truths, myths and mysteries of nature’s most curious insects, arachnids and arthropods – many of which are alive and on display. Those daring enough to enter will be captivated by the deceptive and treacherous techniques these creepy crawlies employ for their own survival.

Breweries offering tastings include Lost Abbey, Stone Brewery, Karl Strauss and Green Flash. Appetizers (both bug-based and bug-free) will also be served.
