Cheers to 10 years of Brew at the Zoo!
August 17 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm$1 – $100.
Don’t miss the 10th annual Brew at the Zoo! Brew at the Zoo is a beer-tasting event that offers guests the opportunity to walk on the wild side as they sample offerings from local breweries and restaurants. The entire zoo, with the exception of the Bird's World building and playground, will be open for this event (weather permitting).
Sip some delicious brews and visit with western lowland gorillas, ring-tailed lemurs, pygmy hippos, and other species in the Zoo’s Tropical Forest Pavilion, as well as giraffes, zebras, kangaroos and many other animals. Don’t miss a visit to Aussie Aviary, a seasonal free-flight aviary featuring brightly-colored budgies.
Venture through our seasonal Wicked BIG Bugs exhibit, where roles will be reversed as you find yourself looking up into the eyes of an 8-foot-tall tarantula, or at the tail of a mighty emperor scorpion looming 15 feet in the air!
