Sharktoberfest returns to NightLife, celebrating two perennial favorites again this year: sharks and beer! Taste your way through the beer garden in African Hall, featuring brews from local favorites like 21st Amendment Brewery, Almanac Beer Co., Anchor Brewing, Drake’s Brewing, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Pacific Brewing Laboratory, Speakeasy Ales & Lagers, and others. Mingle amongst robot sharks and catch Capacitor performing an excerpt from Okeanos. Hear about newly discovered shark species, shark tracking, and current research and conservation efforts from Academy research associates and shark experts Dave Ebert and David McGuire. Plus, see specimens from the Academy’s research collections and library including jaws, shark tooth tools, and photos from 1980 of “Sandy,” the first white shark to survive in captivity.
