Buzzed Belief: A Social Debate Series for All Points of View

It’s difficult to get to life's questions with so many differing opinions swirling around our world today. But we know one thing for sure ... beer helps. As do wine and spirits. So, first: We’ve got those covered.

Each debate will feature a speaker defending a religious position AND a speaker presenting an atheist perspective. You can expect top scholars and authors and an array of different debate topics.

The goal is to learn and to entertain. Ultimately, we hope Buzzed Belief will promote understanding between those who are believers and those who are not. What common values do we share? What points are divisive?  

Want to ask a burning question? DO IT. There will be an open-mic Q&A.

Yes, we can disagree sanely. Perhaps you’ll see the other side, perhaps you’ll change someone else's mind. We promote no agenda other than entertainment, education and a respectful tolerance of opposing viewpoints. If this sounds like your cup of tea, mug of beer, glass of wine or snifter of brandy, then please join us for any or all of these exciting new debates!
