GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — The Grand Rapids Public Museum is hosting a series of classes that offer a scientific look at the brewing and tasting of beer.

The museum has partnered with Brewery Vivant on the "Beer Explorers" classes, which are inspired by the "Earth Explorers" exhibit that's at the museum. The classes are being held in conjunction with the museum's Science Tuesdays programs.

Classes will be held June 21, July 19 and Aug. 16. They're titled "Science of Beer," ''Science of Flavor" and "Yeast Science/Wild Fermentations," respectively. Each class includes general admission to the museum — as well as three beer samples.

The "Earth Explorers" exhibit is designed to bring adventures of National Geographic to life. The exhibit is on display through Sept. 4.
